A campaign to protect police dogs has been launched by MSP Liam Kerr at a Dundee police station. It is not a specific crime to injure or kill a police dog.  The Scottish Conservative MSP visited the police dog unit in Baluniefield, before announcing the campaign.

Fifty drivers charged with speeding offences near schools in the Highlands

Police have charged 50 drivers with speeding offences near schools during a targeted operation either side of the Easter holidays. Thirty individuals were issued with fixed penalty conditional offers – while a further 20 have been reported to the Procurator Fiscal. A number of these vehicles were detected driving in excess of 40mph in areas with a limit of 20mph outside of schools.  The operation ran between Monday, March 26 until Wednesday, March 28 – and then again between Monday, April 16 and Friday, April 20.  Road policing officers were deployed to schools across the Highlands during the operation with the aim of deterring speeding and taking enforcement action against any drivers breaking the limit.

Police Scotland rapped over failure to find body of dead man in his house after a month

Police Scotland have issued an apology after being rapped in a watchdog probe over officers’ failure to discover a man’s body in his own house a month after he went missing. The country’s single force has been told by the Police Investigations & Review Commissioner (PIRC) that a specialist search team had added to the uncertainty and distress of 64-year-old Arnold Mouat’s family over a failure to carry out a “full and systematic” search of his home in Bo’ness in July, last year.
