To ask the Scottish Government when the next update to the report, Equality and Diversity in Police Scotland 2013 will be published.

Answered by: Michael Matheson 21 September 2016

Equality and diversity within Police Scotland is a matter for the Chief Constable. We understand, that in line with the Equality Act 2010 (Specific Duties) (Scotland) Regulations 2012, Police Scotland will publish their next report into Equality and Diversity in 2017. This report follows the publication of their Equality and Diversity Update in 2014 and their Equality and Diversity Mainstreaming Progress Report in 2015. Police Scotland's equality and diversity publications can be found at the following link: http://www.scotland.police.uk/about-us/equality-and-diversity.
