371.16 The complaints in this case arose from the applicant being entered onto Police Scotland's Vulnerable Person's Database (VPD).
Three complaints were reviewed, namely:
1. that the decision to submit a concern report and enter the applicant onto the VPD was unjustified;
2. that an officer carried out an investigation without discussing the matter with the applicant, and then failed to respond to his request for a meeting;
3. that Police Scotland did not advise the applicant that he was the subject of a concern report.
The review found that none of the complaints were dealt with to a reasonable standard. Three recommendations were made.
