HMICS is a member of the Independent Advisory Group set up in April 2020 to review Police Scotland's use of temporary powers provided by coronavirus regulations. The latest report from the IAG was presented to the SPA Board on 30 June 2020 and can be found here http://www.spa.police.uk/assets/126884/441011/601841/623807/item5
HMICS supported the work of the IAG by carrying out interviews with frontline police officers, supervisors and call handlers to get their perspective on using the new legislation. During the first week in June, we carried out 54 interviews with officers and staff from different parts of Scotland. The summary of these interviews was included in the report to the SPA Board, and is also published here.
