Dear Police Scotland,
The information on Complaints can be found on your website but this is very limited indeed. Does Police Scotland have a detailed policy document on the precise method of dealing with complaints? Please provide a copy of this if so.
In the event there is no policy document, please provide information as follows:
What is the procedure for interviewing third parties in relation to a complaint against two Police officers?
Where the conduct of a third party is relevant in part to the complaint, would the third party be asked for information which would incriminate themselves?
Where a complaint includes allegations concerning the integrity of Police officers, would they be able to speak to one another in order to tell the same story in relation to this?
What steps are taken to deal with all the matters included in the complaints? Where there is a failure to cover these in full, would a further complaint be accepted?
Is the complainant provided with a copy of the statement given concerning complaints?
Please accept this message as confirmation that your request has been
received by Police Scotland and will be dealt with under the terms of the
Freedom of Information (Scotland) Act 2002.
Please note, this mailbox is FOI request only.
