Guide to our consultation process, open and previous consultations, and how to make sure you have your say.

Why do we want to involve the public?

Our mission is to work together for a safer Scotland. Active engagement and consultation is a key principle of our approach. The process of public involvement gives people and communities the chance to become involved in decision making processes.

Feedback on our services helps us to understand the needs, experiences and expectations of the communities we serve. This means we can improve and develop our services to meet these needs.
