Answered by: Michael Matheson 8 February 2018
This is a matter for the Police Investigations and Review Commissioner. An Annual Report is laid before the Scottish Parliament under section 43(5) of the Police Public Order and Criminal Justice (Scotland) Act 2006. The latest was laid in December 2017 (SG / 2017 / 216). It is also available on PIRC’s website https://pirc.scot/media/4441/pirc-commissioners-report-final.pdf.
