The PR Listening Post

Police Scotland recently held an 'Access to Justice' partnership event with the British Deaf Association. They met at the West Lothian Civic Centre, took a tour of police custody procedures and the Sheriff Court, and discussed their experiences of police services.

The Crown Office and Procurator Fiscals Service were also involved.

The idea was that Police Scotland would demonstrate its commitment to working alongside the Scottish Deaf community.

This is very curious.

Because while Police Scotland seem very keen to show us that they are listening to the deaf - they seem to be rather deaf themselves when it comes to listening to us, the public.

Am I the only person who sees the irony in this latest shameful public relations exercise from untrustworthy Police Scotland?
