One CHR has been published by the Review Team this week, which reviewed Police Scotland’s handling of three complaints and found all were dealt with to a reasonable standard.

The complaints in PIRC/00417/19 arose after the applicant was stopped and searched by officers because he matched the description of a suspect in an alleged robbery. The incident, which took place in August 2019, resulted in three complaints, namely that one of the Detective Constables didn’t identify himself as a police officer when he stopped and searched the man, that he did not explain the reason for the stop and search and that he displayed a poor manner towards the man.

The Review Team found that Police Scotland handled all three complaints, which were not upheld, to a reasonable standard.
