I have asked John Ewing, Chief Executive of the Scottish Prison Service, to respond. His response is as follows:

The local police forces are notified of all prisoners who are due to be going on temporary licence to their particular area. This is achieved through an email from the SPS establishment releasing the prisoner to the central contact point within that force area.
