METHODS used by Fife Police have once again been held up as a shining example for other forces around Europe to learn from.
A delegation of senior officers from Hungary spent last week in the Kingdom to learn about the force’s community engagement model of policing.
The visit, led by Lieutenant-Colonel Dr Henrik Szabo from Budapest, came only a few weeks after the model was presented to officers from 18 European countries at a seminar in Finland.
Chief Constable Andrew Barker said: “It was an honour and a privilege for Fife Constabulary to host this delegation of fellow officers.
“I am delighted they chose to examine our open and transparent form of community policing with a view to adopting some of its aspects as they move forward.”
