Reinstate the the split in funding between central and local government and giving each council a seat on the Scottish Police Authority


Reform Scotland fundamentally disagrees with the idea of a single police force across Scotland as we don’t believe that a single force allows for the necessary flexibility to deal with the differences that exist throughout Scotland. However, we accept that wholesale police re-organisation on this scale is unlikely and, as a result, it would be better to find a way to re-inject localism into the existing structure. We believe that there are two ways, in particular, that this can be done – through the funding and governance structures.
