Fast Tracking Children at Risk

In the wake of the Brandon Muir case Education Secretary Fiona Hyslop MSP announced funding for a fast track information system for children at risk. According to a report in The Journal the Vulnerable Person's System (VPS) will help agencies react faster to changes in a child's circumstances in the future to keep them safe from neglect and abuse. In the initial stages the system will "allow police forces to share secure, accurate and up-to-date information electronically, it will be open to other agencies in due course."
