The complaints in this case arose from an altercation between the applicant and a bus driver.

Four complaints were considered, namely:

1. That Police Scotland took too long to investigate a crime reported by the applicant;

2. That the investigating officer did not provide the applicant with sufficient updates;

3. That the applicant was told that all CCTV relevant to the crime he reported had been collected, however this was not the case; and

4. That Police Scotland did not report a breach of Road Traffic legislation to the Crown Office and Procurator Fiscal Service within the required timescale.

The review found that all four complaints were handled to a reasonable standard. It was however considered necessary to make a single recommendation.
