Public Panels, all sections of society included. Priorities stated as: Localism, Inclusion, Prevention, Response Collaberative Working, accountability and adaptability. How can this be done with cuts, Police Stations closed / unmanned and defensive practices (very little complaints get through, have an outcome, and officers go off sick or resign to avoid accountability) People are discredited / destroyed for raising issues (internal within the Police and Public Service externally) That needs to change and we need to see true figures and stats. too.

1000% Policing is by consent - public support is a must, absolutely agree, but the Police system needs to change (drastically) it is insular, defensive, self-protective and misogynistic (extremely) it is also racist, self-protective and avoids accountability. up until recently we had the highest stop and search record for innocent people in the developed world despite supposedly having one of the lowest crime rates (explanation required) the positive S&S #'s have not changed for positive results despite this (static at 15-18% annually for those caught committing crimes at the time of S&S) this would imply guilty until proven innocent and we don't believe that (or in that) in our democracy (especially for those for children under 10) [NB 10 is the age where children are considered to be criminally conscious globally] We also currently have the highest figures for women being imprisoned and criminally prosecuted in Scotland from those compared throughout northern Europe. Women are not known for there criminal psychology and when they do usually a male is involved - why is this? This is global so why are Scottish Police criminalising women. Why do they allow clubs (and the Masons) to purposely exclude females when it is illegal to do so? Muirfield Golf Club is a prime example of this. Victims of domestic abuse, sexual abuse and rape are finding themselves (self-defence) because police do not prioritise THEM. The perpetrators who break arms, jaws, noses remain free to continue. Domestic cases of anti-social behaviour again, arrests of the victim (mostly single women - again) when perpetrators go mostly unchallenged. These figures are not currently logged by any force. the last stats compiled showed over 2 million cases (UK Total) in 5 years (2011, I believe) Police Scotland only take action (majority) against women children, immigrants and the vulnerable. Those in council houses / estates are not even on your radar. You need to be a modern force, not a racist, corrupt and misogynist one who no-crimescrimes and labels multiple crimes as one, if they involve the same people / locus (like something from the 1950's) I used to believe in you. I put my money where my mouth is and found myself criminalised for daring to criticise you. I have lies, false statements, deliberate Data protection breaches, misconduct and accusations of Mental illness (my anti-social neighbours got away with everything - despite having a history of alcohol / drug abuse and mental illness) against myself when this was not the case. I paid money to the police benevolent fund - but there is nothing protective or benevolent about you. That changes. You manipulate data and service provision politically then pull the sympathy card for cuts. All of the things mentioned above only bring cuts and payoffs. We, the public lose all round(especially in the wrong postcode area and of the wrong race or sex) Then there's misconduct - lies under oath, DPA breaches, not logging crimes, not processing crimes and use of volunteers / civilians. We need Police. Real trained experiences things are a mess with breaches and human rights abuses in Scotland. There's no excuses for that. None. Quit avoid prosecution when caught, refuse to process complaints. Attack and discredit complainers. Make examples of your supporters, then you have none. Brexit. You need to change.

Workforce

5. The Policing 2026 strategy highlights that we will need to re-shape our organisation with a workforce focussed on having the right skills and capacity to meet future challenges. Do you agree with this approach?

Criticism MUST be taken on board and the public not just seen as through an us / them lens as it currently is.

but lack detail. Facts and how this can financially be achieved (kind of like political party manifesto pre-elections! Zero Outcome!

This will not change my life, to Police Scotland I don't exist. I am a female, one who has been abused and you criminalised me instead. Once a supporter - now a harsh critic of yours. You failed me. Apologised then deconstructed my life. I will not forgive that, but I will make sure that I continue to use my voice. I am the wrong sex, at the wrong address, not connected and in the wrong socio-economic group to ever warrant your help. Only putting things right will ever change that, nothing else.
