SCOT­LAND’S top in­spec­tor of polic­ing has an­nounced he is to re­tire next year.

Derek Pen­man, HM Chief In­spec­tor of Con­stab­u­lary in Scot­land, has given no­tice to the Scot­tish Gov­ern­ment that he in­tends to re­tire on March 31.

Mr Pen­man has spent 33 years in polic­ing, and took up his cur­rent role in 2014. He said he “con­sis­tently sought to im­prove polic­ing across Scot­land”.

“Hav­ing re-es­tab­lished HMICS as a key scru­tiny body ... the time is now right for me to move on to new chal­lenges,” he said.

HM In­spec­tor of Con­stab­u­lary in Scot­land is the se­nior pro­fes­sional po­lice ad­viser to Scot­tish min­is­ters.
