In The Eyes Of The Law (Scotland)

This area is now specifically for members to ask the community any question on the law in Scotland.


Posting Guidance

This forum is intended for members to seek advice on Scottish Law and Police Procedures. Just like you would pop into your local police station to should the need arise.

Any advice on a specific area of law is from either currently-serving UK police officers, and is offered to the best of their ability, or from members of the public who are perhaps aspiring to be serving police officers and may not hold the necessary level of knowledge to provide such assistance or by any other member who may offer their opinion. Either way such advice can only be treated as an opinion and nothing more.

Members should look for the Police Verified badge that appears next to the posters name as advice from members holding this badge are verified UK Police Officers.

The badge that will be displayed is;

The information is based on their own individual experiences, expertise and training. It is stressed, however, that if any information or advice found in these forums is used by any person or organisation, then the respective police officer(s) can not and will not take any responsibility for any outcome in any investigation in a criminal or civil enquiry. Any advice or opinion offered is to the best of the officer's knowledge and ability based on the information you have supplied, and we will stress that we will never be knowingly misleading or untruthful in content.
  • Please note, we do not offer advice or assistance in order to avoid penalties that you have incurred or maybe pending.
  • Such requests are deemed to be of an Operational nature and against our main Forum Rules.
  • You should always seek Legal Advice from a Qualified Solicitor in the event of any impending prosecutions or other involved legal matter.
