Mary Fee MSP supports Scottish Police Federation #itswhatwedo Campaign
The Scottish Police Federation is both humbled and delighted at the support offered to the fine men and women of the Police Service of Scotland by Mary Fee MSP. Lodging a motion which both praises the Scottish Police Federation #itswhatwedo video and social media campaign and which recognises the commitment courage and dedication of police officers in Scotland, Mary Fee’s motion asks;
“That the Parliament recognises the campaign by the Scottish Police Federation, It’s What We Do, which is designed to highlight the multitude of different considerations that police officers face when dealing with what start out as the most routine calls; considers that police officers are ordinary people with families and loved ones, who do an extraordinary job and place themselves in harm’s way so that others do not have to, dealing with events and tragedies that others struggle to imagine, and that the split-second decisions that officers make every day can have life or death consequences for them and the public; understands that, in order to illustrate the difficulties that officers face, the campaign has produced three videos showing situations that officers can find themselves in on a daily basis; further understands that the campaign calls for the videos to be watched and distributed as widely as possible using social media with the tagline, #itswhatwedo, and congratulates the men and women of Police Scotland, who, it considers, show strength, courage and determination in undertaking their duties while keeping Scotland and its communities safe
