To ask the Scottish Government what costs have been incurred in detaining suspects in custody prior to court appearances for offences under the Offensive Behaviour at Football and Threatening Communications (Scotland) Act 2012.
Answered by: Annabelle Ewing 1 March 2017
The information requested is not held centrally by the Scottish Government. The Act makes no provision for policing which is entirely an operational matter for Police Scotland. The member may wish to direct his request to the Chief Constable of Police Scotland.
