Our Scrutiny Plan

Our Annual Scrutiny Plan sets out how HM Inspectorate of Constabulary in Scotland (HMICS) will meet its statutory purpose to inquire into the state, efficiency and effectiveness of both the Police Service of Scotland (‘Police Scotland’) and the Scottish Police Authority. This Plan is published in terms of Section 75 of the Police and Fire Reform (Scotland) Act 2012 and sets out our priorities for inquiries over the year. It demonstrates how we will carry these out in a way that is proportionate, accountable and transparent.
