Police officers across Scotland are to receive PPE gear to assist them with their response to coronavirus.
Teams have been working around the clock in order to secure, order, receive and distribute appropriate equipment.
More than 630 officers have already received the kit across Scotland, which includes FFP3 masks, gloves, boot covers, coveralls and goggles.
Roll-outs of fitting, training and issuing PPE will be underway next week across all local policing divisions.
Deputy Chief Constable Malcolm Graham said: “Our officers are playing a vital role in keeping people safe at this extraordinary time and we want them to have the right protective equipment to enable them to do their jobs with confidence.
“We have had several teams working continuously on procuring and distributing vital supplies to staff and these are being issued across priority areas, with significant orders for more items, including masks, goggles and gloves, scheduled for delivery over the coming days and weeks.
“The procurement of available PPE is a key piece of work being undertaken in challenging circumstances due to exceptional levels of demand and we are streamlining and simplifying the process where possible.
“We are working with the Scottish Government and partners, and at a UK level, to ensure required PPE is delivered as quickly as possible.”
