The complaints in this case arose from the applicant's contact with Police Scotland during a family dispute.

Five complaints were reviewed, namely:

1. that an officer failed to pass information to the Procurator Fiscal;

2. that an officer carried out insufficient enquiry before reporting the applicant to the Procurator Fiscal;

3. that an officer incorrectly advised the applicant that only Police Scotland knew that the applicant had been arrested;

4. that an officer provided guidance during the enquiry to a third party who was known to the officer personally;

5. that a Police Scotland form signed by his wife was subsequently amended and the word 'stalking' added.

The review found that three of the complaints were dealt with to a reasonable standard and two were not. Two recommendations were made.
