Policing during a pandemic

Organised by SASO (Scottish Association for the Study of Offending) 

Speaker: Gill Imery, QPM, was appointed Her Majesty’s Chief Inspector of Constabulary in Scotland in April 2018.

She is a member of the Independent Advisory Group set up to review Police Scotland’s use of the new temporary police powers to tackle coronavirus. In September 2020 HM Inspectorate of Constabulary in Scotland and HM Inspectorate of Prosecution in Scotland published a report on the Joint Inspection of Emergency Criminal Justice Provisions.

Gill began working with Lothian & Borders Police in 1986, serving in a variety of posts. In 2004 she was promoted to Detective Superintendent and was appointed as National Drugs Co-ordinator with the Scottish Crime and Drug Enforcement Agency. She was promoted to Chief Superintendent in 2008. In 2010 she became commander of the City of Edinburgh, and then Detective Chief Superintendent and Head of CID for Lothian and Borders Police before the transition to Police Scotland in 2013. She was awarded the Queens Police Medal in the Queen’s Birthday Honours in 2017.

This event will run from 6 – 7 pm and take the format of a brief introduction from the Chair, followed by a 30-minute live presentation from our guest speaker. The audience will be invited to post questions during the course of the presentation. Gill will be pleased to respond to a range of these questions during the second half of the session.

The event is FREE to members and supporters of SASO as well as the general public.
