The 2018/19 audit of the Scottish Police Authority

 

The 2018/19 audit of the Scottish Police Authority

Caroline Gardner, Auditor General for Scotland, said: "There is still an absolute need to agree a fully shared understanding about what the SPA's functions and responsibilities are, so that it can fulfil the role envisaged in legislation in 2012.
"There have been improvements, but considerable challenges remain. The SPA now needs a period of stability to build capacity and plan for a modern and financially stable police service."
