SNP refused to fund upgrades to police control rooms

The SNP need to take responsibility for hundreds of serious errors in Police Scotland control rooms over the last few years.

Scottish Conservative research has found officers were sent to the wrong address 62 times and police were delayed attending to emergency calls on 81 occasions.

Brave police officers and staff are doing a great job to the best of their abilities, but all too often, their needs and welfare have gone ignored by Sturgeon’s government.

The SNP has flat out refused to fund the digital upgrades they promised, meaning officers and call-handlers are under huge strain.

Instead of pushing for independence at every turn, Sturgeon should be visiting police control rooms so she can understand just how devastating an impact she is having on the front line.
