The Scottish Police Federation represents all police officers in the ranks of constable, sergeant, inspector and chief inspector, police cadets and special constables; over 18,500 people, 98% of all police officers in Scotland.
The Scottish Police Federation is devastated to learn of the tragic death of our colleague Martin Mooney and our thoughts are very much with Martin’s family, friends and colleagues.
Our officials continue to engage with the family, offering support and advice.
In the meantime, we call on members of the media to respect the privacy of all those affected by Martin’s death and in particular that they refrain from approaching the family for comment.
