Macdonald : Aberdeen Control Decision "must be scrapped"
North East Labour MSP Lewis Macdonald has today written to the SNP Justice Secretary Michael Matheson calling for an immediate halt to plans to close the police control room and service centre in Aberdeen.
“The loss of local knowledge which will occur when further facilities are closed will only make this situation more dangerous for local communities.
“It is right that an investigation and a review have been ordered, but SNP Ministers must call a halt now to closures planned for later this year.
“Only by confirming that local emergency calls will be handled by local staff can confidence be restored in this vital public service.”
