Dear Police Scotland,

Oxford University's, Dr Kevin Dutton (psychologist), has stated that many police officers are untrustworthy psychopaths. Psychopaths by nature are pathological liars. If this academic's research findings are true and accurate then the public surely has a right to know what Police Scotland is doing to right this wrong on your part. Therefore, please inform me which condition-specific testing methods Police Scotland makes use of to ensure that those psychopaths currently employed by your organisation are identified and removed from our police force? There are many tests available.

Yours faithfully,

Peter McNab
