Scheme coordinator

Iain Macleod
I am a community police officer responsible to this large rural beat to the south of Oban including the islands of Seil ,Easdale, Luing and Colonsay. As communications improve in our areas, this scheme is an ideal way for Police Scotland and its partner agencies getting information out to the more rural areas quickly, this includes vehicle and vessel or aircraft details of suspect persons within your areas in a bid to prevent and discourage rural crime. It keeps you the individual or your business and staff better informed creating an effective community alert system that gets the right information to the right people at the right time.
