In PIRC/00475/19, the two complaints in this case arose from an investigation into the applicant’s continued suitability to hold firearms and shotgun certificates.
We found that the second complaint - that an inspector failed to sufficiently investigate allegations that were made against the applicant - was not reasonably handled. As a result, we have made a recommendation that Police Scotland should provide a further response to the applicant within two months.
In PIRC/00508/19, we found that a complaint following the applicant being interviewed in connection with a fire at his friend’s home was reasonably handled by police and no further action is required.
