Official Police Resource

The Ask Police Scotland application is intended to provide the general public with information on a wide range of non-emergency ‘policing’ issues – at a time to suit them.

The app contains accurate, legally verified answers to over 750 of the questions most frequently asked by the public across Scotland. Questions and answers are added and updated frequently and the Question of the Day and Latest News features provide topical information.

The content of the App is provided by the PNLD (Police National Legal Database). PNLD is a business service of the Police and Crime Commissioner West Yorkshire and has been providing online information resources since 1994.

A wireless or 3G network is required to access the information in this app.

Email text not visible

Downloaded & deleted the App the same evening. Had some info, but when trying to write my email nothing was printed in the input box! Tried twice. I wanted to like this App, as I’m a great believer of sharing information with the police which could be relevant for them.

Found this really helpful

Unlike the only other reviewer I found this app quite helpful. The issues I looked up weren’t Police matters and I got the info I needed.
