The SNP have been centralising the life out of Scotland’s communities, and nowhere is this more obvious than in Police Scotland. James Calder wants to bring back community-led policing to Scotland, and believes Fifers will benefit directly from this.

James has said, “Despite the hard work of our police officers and staff, the SNP have damaged the local links so important in our police force. Top-down targets and overly-centralised structures have led to increased stop-and-searches, damaging out civil liberties, as well as the situation where we did have armed police were sent to routine calls. We need to restore traditional policing in Scotland by allowing local officers to use their discretion as well as bring back local consensus and accountability.”
