Firearms and Mental Health from Police Scotland

Firearms and Mental Health
Introduction
EVERYONE’S mental health is important and at some point, in all our lives the majority of us will be affected by circumstances or feelings that can impact negatively on us. It is important that members of the shooting community, as well as their family, friends and colleagues,
understand that it’s ok to tell us you’re not ok.

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 16th 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 20th March 2020.
