We asked

In line with Police Scotland's 2026 Strategy, and to ensure our service is sustainable and appropriate for local needs, 53 premises across the country were identified for potential disposal without affecting the delivery of operational policing for local communities. Through public consultation, and engagement with communities, partners, stakeholders and elected officials, we sought the opinion of people from across the country as to whether there was support for the disposal of these premises.

You said

Through the consultation, which received 1,731 responses, there was support for the disposal of 49 of the 53 properties.

We did

The four properties where public feeling was against their disposal - Lairg in Sutherland, Lochboisdale on South Uist, and Dunvegan and Broadford on the Isle of Skye - will remain part of the Police Scotland Estate for the time being. Further detailed engagement with the relevant communities and partners will be carried out to try to find a solution which makes best use of these empty properties.

Overview

Police Scotland inherited a large estate that was developed many years ago, when the demands facing policing were significantly different from our current demands. In line with our 2026 Strategy, we are looking to ensure our service is sustainable and appropriate for local needs. This has led to 53 premises being identified for potential disposal following a review of our estate. It is important to recognise that the potential disposal of the 53 identified premises will not change how operational policing is delivered to local communities.

The 53 premises were identified by Local Policing Divisions, who are best placed to understand local demands and how local policing services should be delivered.  The vast majority of the 53 premises identified are empty and are not used as a base for Police Officers or Police Staff.

All 53 premises identified can be found on this map.
