EXPLANATORY NOTE

(This note is not part of the Regulations)

These Regulations amend the Police Service of Scotland Regulations 2013 (“the Police Service Regulations”) and the Police Service of Scotland (Special Constables) Regulations 2013 (“the Special Constables Regulations”).

Regulation 2 inserts a new definition, of EEA State, into regulation 2(1) of the Police Service Regulations and amends regulation 6(1) to insert a new requirement for candidates for appointment to the Police Service of Scotland to meet. That requirement is that, if not a national of an EEA State, the candidate must have leave to enter or remain in the United Kingdom for an indefinite period.

Regulation 3 amends the Special Constables Regulations and makes similar provision to that in relation to the Police Service Regulations.

These provisions could not be included in the Police Service Regulations or the Special Constables Regulations until the point at which power to do so was provided by the coming into force of amendments made to section 82 of the Police Reform Act 2002 by the Police and Fire Reform (Scotland) Act 2012 (Consequential Provisions and Modifications) Order 2013.

(2)

2002 c.30. Section 82(4) was amended by the Serious Organised Crime and Police Act 2005 (c.15), Schedule 4, paragraph 185(5).
