Strathclyde Police Authority has been criticised in a report by the Accounts Commission, which stated it had made little progress in improving its performance over the last year.
The commission also highlighted that fact that although 34 local councillors were invited, only three attended strategic planning workshops last winter.
A range of concerns were originally raised in July 2011 following an inspection, but the commission stated many had still not been acted upon, although there were some signs that the organisation was “moving in the right direction”.
Scottish Conservative justice spokesman David McLetchie MSP said:
“It is disappointing that there has been so little engagement by councillors in the police authority in relation to what is our largest police force.
“This does not auger well for the new single police force due to come in next April.”
