Concern over Police Scotland public counter closures

3 November 2013 Last updated at 13:18 GMT

When were you last at a public counter in a police station?

Police Scotland say they need to modernise the service and shutting 65 of what they say are little-used counters will help them make efficiency savings of more than £4m - a dent in the £64m budget shortfall.

Senior officers knew it would be a controversial move but there has been a real backlash against the proposal.

For Sunday Politics Scotland, Andrew Kerr spoke to: Councillor Brian Boyd, an independent on Angus Council, Gerry Crawley of Unison, Assistant Chief Constable Wayne Mawson of Police Scotland, and Calum Steele of the Scottish Police Federation.
