Meeting with Scottish Government officials


Yesterday we travelled to York to meet with the civil servants from the Scottish Government who are working on the integration of BTP Scotland into Police Scotland.

We are encouraged at the progress being made on matters such as terms and conditions, and there is evidence of work being done to address the concerns we have raised. There was also a clear appreciation of the need to provide more frequent updates and the officials have committed to meeting with us on a more regular basis.

We are now working with them on a set of questions and answers for circulation to our members and colleagues. The Q&A document will be updated at intervals to reflect the progress being made.

We are due to meet again in a month's time and will post a further update then.
