Message from the Chair – Asma Ali 
Assalamu Alaikum and Ramadhan Greetings to you all. SPMA is almost 10 years old! I still remember our first steering group meeting which took place in September 2007 within Glasgow Central Mosque. The organisation was set up following the attempted terrorist attack on 30 June 2007 at Glasgow Airport.

SPMA is an organisation dedicated not only to supporting Muslim Police officers and Police staff, but also acting as a conduit between the Police Service of Scotland and the diverse Muslim communities, with the following ethos …”working together ….building bridges”.

I am of the view that our ethos is a powerful one, one that is profound and needed more than ever in light of the recent events that have occurred on our doorstep, with tragic heartbreaking consequences. Our deepest condolences to all those who have lost loved ones or been affected by the events. We also pay tribute to our emergency services colleagues who have been fantastic during these trying times.

Peace and love to you all.
