Police Charging at Events - Guidance
Following Event Industry Feedback on The Scottish Police Authority (SPA) approved ‘Charging for Goods and Services Policy’ – a policy that enables Police Scotland to charge for the provision of police services at events - Police Scotland has now produced a Step-By-Step Guide to the Assessment Matrix Process. This is available on the http://www.eventscotland.org/.
It is EventScotland’s role in this matter to help identify the implications and impacts of this new charging policy and help communicate guidance and best practice to the events sector.
EventScotland, Police Scotland, Scottish Government and industry bodies SEFA and NOEA will continue to work together to monitor the impact of this new policy therefore it’s important to let us know if your event has been affected. If your event is affected please contact Polly.McClure@eventscotland.org
