Crowne Plaza Hotel


The merger of national police forces into the single force Police Scotland has raised questions about police accountability and oversight, and whether there has been increased harm to the public through the use of stop and search, armed officers and emerging policies around custody, personal data and other operational decision making. This session will discuss how to ensure appropriate control, accountability and oversight mechanisms to maintain policing by consent of the Scottish public.

Speakers include:
Shelagh McCall QC (chair)
Rona Mackay MSP, Justice Sub-Committee on Policing
John Scott QC, chair of the Independent Advisory Group on the Use of Biometric Data
Calum Steele, General Secretary of the Scottish Police Federation

The event will take place during the Scottish National Party Annual Conference, in the Jura Suite of the Crowne Plaza Hotel from 12.30-1.30pm.
