1 STAFF AND ACCOMMODATION
The staff of the Inspectorate during the period of this report consisted of the Chief Inspector, a Principal Legal Inspector, a Legal Inspector, a Management Inspector and a Personal Assistant. At the time of publication the Principal Inspector was returning to the Crown Office and Procurator Fiscal Service and a new secondee has been recruited.
The number of staff is bolstered throughout the year as necessary by the recruitment of Ad Hoc Inspectors to carry out specific tasks particularly in relation to the examination of casework. These Ad Hoc Inspectors have considerable experience of the system and add flexibility to the staffing arrangements and are a valuable, cost effective additional resource.
The Inspectorate continues to occupy premises at Legal House, Gorbals Street, Glasgow. This central location puts the Inspectorate within easy travelling distance of a significant number of Procurator Fiscal Offices.
