Police Scotland Focus on Wildlife Crime

On 1 April 2013, the Police Service of Scotland – known as Police Scotland – came into being. This single force replaced the 8 force areas that had existed since 1975 to become a unified single force for the whole of the country.

Police Scotland has 14 local divisions each headed by a Chief Superintendent and each with a dedicated Wildlife Crime Liaison Officer supported by Wildlife Crime Officers. The Wildlife Crime Liaison Officers will be line managed locally and responsibility for local delivery of Wildlife Crime policing will be embedded with Local Commanders.

National oversight is provided by Scottish Wildlife Crime Co-ordinator Sergeant Andy Mavin and portfolio lead officer Detective Superintendent Cameron Cavin, whilst Assistant Chief Constable Malcolm Graham is the Chief Officer Lead.  This reflects the way policing will be delivered by the single service. It will be nationally led but it will be locally delivered.

Any member of the public wishing to contact Police Scotland regarding wildlife crime, should dial ‘101’ (the non-emergency number) and ask for the divisional Wildlife Crime Liaison Officer or an on-duty Wildlife Crime Officer if one is available.  In an emergency, always dial ‘999’.

Wildlife Crime Liaison Officers are listed below (although as wildlife crime is like any other crime any officer can undertake initial enquiries):

Appeal for information on missing sea eagle

Douglas McAdam, chief executive of Scottish Land & Estates, said: "As a member of the Partnership for Action Against Wildlife Crime, Scottish Land & Estates is offering every assistance to the investigation into the missing sea eagle in the north-east of Scotland and wholly supports the appeals for information that have been made by the Scottish Government and Police Scotland. It is of paramount importance that the facts are established as soon as possible and it would not be appropriate to comment on any specifics of the ongoing police investigation."

 

PAW 01: The Partnership for Action Against Wildlife Crime

The Partnership for Action Against Wildlife Crime Scotland was launched in 1995 with the key objective of promoting effective wildlife law enforcement both nationally and internationally. PAW Scotland represents a range of bodies concerned with preventing and tackling crimes against wildlife. Land managers, conservationists, all eight Scottish Police forces and the Scottish Government are involved in the operation of PAW Scotland.
