Message from New Local Area Commander

I am honoured to have been appointed as the Local Area Commander for Perth & Kinross.  I have previously led teams in Community Policing, Professional Standards and most recently Divisional Roads Policing based in Tayside where I oversaw Road Safety for the Division.


I wish Tom all the best for his new role and look forward to building on the outstanding work he and his team have achieved during his time as Local Area Commander, and to working with our partners to ensure that we continue to deliver a high standard of service to the communities in Perth & Kinross.
