I believe that a new police station will be opened in the next couple of months. However, operational matters are the responsibility of the chief constable.

Phil Gallie raised the bigger issue of violent crime, which affects not just North Ayrshire but the whole of Scotland. The First Minister has made it clear that that is unacceptable. There are cultural issues that we need to address, and there are resource and legislative issues that we are addressing and will continue to address. Violent behaviour is unacceptable and will be dealt with.
