Review on the use of the new emergency police powers within Scotland
To tackle COVID-19 and maintain public safety, Police Scotland were given new emergency powers and this included the ability to:
take someone home or take them to be tested if they were thought to be infectious;
close a wide range of non-essential businesses; and
restrict people's rights to move around in public or be part of a gathering.
In light of these new powers, the Independent Advisory Group is keen to hear experiences of members of the public in Scotland in relation to the policing of the pandemic since the start of the lockdown period. Views should be submitted by 01 September 2020.
