New message from Police Scotland regarding shotgun and firearms licensing during the Corona Virus Crisis

NFEL – Coronavirus response

The current unprecedented circumstances in respect of the Coronavirus has impacted on the ability of Police Scotland to deliver a number of business as usual functions. It is necessary that we have as many officers as possible available to front line operational policing and support our colleagues in the NHS.

As such, in light of the guidance issued by the Government on Monday 16<sup>th</sup> March, National Firearms and Explosives Licensing has reviewed the current processes in respect of grant and renewal applications and the following will be implemented with effect from Friday 20<sup>th</sup> March 2020.
