The Commission has responded to the consultation on the 10 year strategy for policing in Scotland. We welcome the commitment to the values of fairness, integrity and respect as well as to a rights based approach to policing in the proposed strategy. However, we recommend that human rights should be explicitly cited whilst mainstreamed across the whole strategy.
We invited interested parties to tender for a contract to develop and deliver a nationwide participatory process. The deadline for receipt of applications was Tuesday 23rd May 2017. If you have any questions related to this tender, please contact Emma Hutton or Kirsty Innes on 0131 244 3550 or at Emma.Hutton@scottishhumanrights.com / Kirsty.Innes@scottishhumanrights.com
