The Executive Committee comprises a mixture of voluntary and full time staff representing all Superintendents and Chief Superintendents across Police Scotland.  Each District holds local meetings to discuss matters affecting local or national issues at District level.  Each District elects office bearers to serve on the national Executive Committee and delegates to attend Annual Conference in May.

Representation on the national Executive Committee is as follows: –

  • North District Chair and Vice Chair.
  • East District Chair and Vice Chair.
  • West District Chair and Vice Chair.

The Executive Committee may also Co-opt a Treasurer and other non-voting members as required

Executive Elections are held for each District every 2 years. After this election there follows a national ballot of all ASPS Members, to elect the President for a period of 2 years.

Annual Conference is held in May when delegates affirm the election of the President, Vice-President and Executive Members including the Treasurer and any Co-options. The Meeting will also address any Constitutional matters as appropriate. At this time appointments are made to a wide range of committees and statutory bodies on which the Association has representation.

The President and General Secretary regularly represent the Association in Scottish and UK Government meetings including meetings with the Cabinet Secretary for Justice, Justice Committee, the Police Negotiating Board (PNB), PNB Scotland Standing Committee and Pensions Working Parties, Chief Constable and Scottish Police Authority.

The Association’s Senior Office Holders also represent members’ views on a number of Regional and National Meetings and Working Parties.

The Administration of the Association is the responsibility of the General Secretary with the Office Manager, based in the Secretariat, which is located at the Scottish Police College.
