Police (Scotland) Act 1967

Status:

This is the original version (as it was originally enacted).

24Constables engaged on central service or on overseas police service

(1)Where, immediately before the date when the amalgamation scheme comes into operation, either—

(a)section 38(1)(a) of this Act, or

(b)section 2 of the Police (Overseas Service) Act 1945 (members of home police forces engaged on overseas service),

applied to any person as having been a constable of a transferred force, that section shall, unless the amalgamation scheme otherwise provides, apply to him in relation to any period after the said date as if for any reference to the police force to which he was entitled to revert there were substituted a reference to the new force, and references in that section to the appropriate authority shall be construed accordingly.

(2)Nothing in subsection (1) of this section shall be construed as entitling a person who has engaged for a period of overseas service to revert to the new force as the chief constable of that force; but where any person who immediately before he so engaged was the chief constable of a transferred force would but for this provision be so entitled to revert to the new force, then, if he does not join that force in some capacity other than that of chief constable at the end of his period of overseas service in pursuance of an agreement in that behalf made by him during that period, section 23(2) of this Act shall apply to him as if for any reference therein to the date when the amalgamation scheme came into operation there were substituted a reference to the end of his period of overseas service.

(3)In this section the expressions " transferred force " and " new force" have the same meanings as they have for the purposes of Schedule 2 to this Act, and the expression " overseas service " has the same meaning as it has for the purposes of the Police (Overseas Service) Act 1945.
