POLICE SCOTLAND NOTIFICATION: ERROR REGARDING SNARE TAGS


Notification to SGA Members: Snare Certificate Error (issue of duplicate numbers).

We have been notified by Police Scotland that a small number of individuals who had snare certificates issued from March 2015 may have been allocated duplicate snare tag numbers due to an administrative error.

Police Scotland has sent a letter to the 60 individuals who have been allocated duplicate snare tag numbers, with a message about what to do if questioned about their use of the duplicate tags. 

The guidance is that, as Police Scotland has the hard copy original applications and paperwork, should any SGA members be challenged in respect of use of a duplicate number, they should refer to the Glasgow Firearm's Licensing Office. 

The number for this is 01786895586.
