Police and Community in Scotland - Past, Present and Future Workshop

7th March 2014

This workshop aimed to evaluate the different models that have characterised the relationship between police and communities in Scotland. It brought together police researchers, practitioners, historians, archivists and curators to discuss how past and present can be brought together for future benefit. In what ways can we learn from the past? How have communities changed in Scotland, and what does this mean for policing? What are the current challenges for local policing? How might police history be used to build links with local communities?
