McArthur responds to allegations against Assistant Chief Constable


Responding to reports that Assistant Chief Constable Bernard Higgins is now being investigated over allegations of misconduct and gross misconduct, Scottish Liberal Democrat justice spokesperson Liam McArthur MSP said:

“At the start of a new year, it is disappointing to see no change in the damaging headlines surrounding the leadership of policing in Scotland.

“As Police Scotland seeks to recover from the chaos created by the SNP government’s botched centralisation it needs a leadership team with the authority to take forward that recovery. 

“It is essential, therefore, that these serious allegations of misconduct and gross misconduct are investigated thoroughly and with real urgency.”
