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.
