Two CHRs have been published by the Review Team this week, which examined a total of 14 complaints made against Police Scotland.

In PIRC/00536/19, seven complaints were made in relation to an incident during which the complainer alleged he and his family were racially abused by a member of the public.

We found that five of the complaints were reasonably handled by Police Scotland. Two recommendations were made to address the shortcomings in the handling of complaints three and six. Both must be re-assessed and a further response issued to the applicant within two months of the date of this report.

In PIRC/00084/19 & PIRC/00315/19, the seven complaints in this case arose after the applicant made a number of reports to the police about young people in his neighbourhood behaving in an anti-social manner.

We found that all of the complaints were reasonably handled by police.
