Tulliallan Police HQ Announcement

MSP Bill Walker has welcomed confirmation that the interim headquarters of the new Police Service of Scotland will be at Tulliallan Police College, after the Association of Chief Police Officers in Scotland chose the location.
SNP MSP Mr Walker, whose Dunfermline constituency includes the Police College, said:
“Tulliallan is the right choice: the facilities are already in place, which will save money and ensure a smooth transition in April, while ensuring an effective service that will be off to a running start.
“The fact that the interim HQ will be in Fife, rather than Glasgow or Edinburgh, is a reassuring commitment to the national nature of the new police force, which will serve the whole of Scotland. This move will also bring a modest jobs boost to the local economy.
“Eventually, the new force will decide on its permanent HQ. I hope it will remain in Tulliallan and will be lobbying for this. I know that Kenny MacAskill, the Cabinet Secretary for Justice is also in favour of Tulliallan, though the ultimate decision lies with the police.
“Tulliallan is central, has great transport links and is a world-class Police College, where officers come from around the world to be trained.”
