Dear Police Scotland,

I request a summary of the Service's policy on warning shots in operational use by Authorised Firearms Officers. I am aware of the policy cited briefly in Chapter 5, Part 2.2 of the Association of Chief Police Officers' Manual of Guidance on Police Use of Firearms, which states that warning shots are not permitted in Scotland - I am inquiring for an elaboration on this policy and whether or not this is still the case.

Yours faithfully,
John Maguire
