WATCH: police chief in flying visit to isles

The chief constable of Scotland, Phil Gormley, made a “much delayed” visit to Shetland today to focus on issues of “localism and diversity”.

It is part of the development of the national police force’s Policing 2026 strategy and an “opportune moment to get out and visit one of the most remote policed communities in Scotland”, according to Mr Gormley.

He said that police in Shetland and their local partners were working to deliver what appeared to be a “very good service” within the isles.

Police Scotland is encouraging as many people to get involved in the conversation over the future of policing and you can do that by visiting the link Policing 2026 consultation.

There will be a more extensive report in Friday’s Shetland Times.
