SPF Media Release- SPA Accounts

Speaking in response to the publication of the SPA accounts and in particular the details concerning high value appointments and consultants, a spokesman for the Scottish Police Federation said;

“By any measure the spending of over £300,000 on two temporary staff for a matter of months work can only be described as profligacy of the highest order.
It is beyond belief that at a time the police service is under the greatest financial stress in living memory that public funds have been used like Monopoly money by people getting paid a fortune, paying a fortune to consultants so that they in turn can make fortunes.
It seems the only people to suffer in these times of austerity are hard working police officers and the wider public.”
