"Today I met officers who, like me, are starting their careers with Police Scotland. Over the next weeks and months, I will be talking and listening to not only Police Scotland officers and staff but also our partners to help inform how we respond to the challenges the service faces.
"The professional judgement and discretion of these officers and their colleagues across the country will be critical in meeting these challenges."
