News : Police Scotland Call Centre Closures Delayed
Aberdeen, Scotland, Aug 25, 2016 -- Police Scotland is to further delay its plans to close control rooms in Aberdeen and Inverness.
They had been expected to close early this year, with calls being transferred to a new control room in Dundee.
An inquiry into the deaths of two people in a car accident on the M9 in July last year delayed that move until later this year.
The force has now said that Aberdeen will close in March next year, with Inverness following three months later.
Her Majesty's Inspectorate of Constabulary in Scotland will oversee the process, Police Scotland said.

About Police Scotland:
The Police Service of Scotland is the primary police service of Scotland. It was formed in 2013 with the merger of all eight territorial police forces in Scotland and the specialist services of the Scottish Police Services Authority, including the Scottish Crime and Drug Enforcement Agency. Although not formally absorbing it, the merger also resulted in the winding down of the Association of Chief Police Officers in Scotland.
