UKGC and Scottish Police team up

1 Feb 2017

Scottish PoliceThe Scottish Police have begun their full time inspections to all the betting shops in Falkirk. This actions have been taken in order to ensure that there are not any illegal gambling activities in the territory. In fact, the United Kingdom Gambling Commission is supervising the police officers’ training and make betting shop staff aware of the risks of crime. We should mention that those visits that happened at the betting shops, were allowed and had the full support of the betting shops operators.

Helen Venn, who is the Gambling Commission programme director, commented on the matter: «Today’s action is just one of a number of operations we have conducted over the last year across Scotland from North Ayrshire to Aberdeenshire. We have used this operation to target a range of possible gambling offences. Since 2014, we have undertaken nearly 200 proactive compliance inspections of gambling licensed premises in Scotland. Actions that often involve police officers, licensing standards officers, and other agencies. We are committed to working with all our partners to ensure that gambling is fair and open. That criminal activity is prevented and that children and vulnerable people are protected.».
