PRCA highlights importance of local police comms teams as Scottish police to merge into one force

PCRA supports local policePCRA supports local police

With First Minister for Scotland, Alex Salmond’s announcement that the Scottish Government is to propose that police forces across Scotland will merge to become one single body, the PRCA has moved to highlight the work of communications teams within police forces and the important work they do for the local community.

Salmond today announced that one of the new bills being introduced by the Scottish Government would see the police forces become one entity, which could see the centralisation of the communications teams working for the police across Scotland.

Said Richard Ellis, head of communications for the PCRA: “Police PR and comms teams do far more than issue releases about who’s been nicked. As individuals we judge our own security not by national crime stats but by what we see in our own neighbourhoods. Local police PR and communications teams do great work engaging their communities, building trust in the police and raising awareness of current initiatives and successes. To lose that local support would be short-sighted to say the least.”
