RISE wants Police Scotland abolished: police forces should come under local community control.
Practices like “stop and search” and armed policing should end. Likewise, the Offensive Behaviour Act should be scrapped. RISE also believes we can save millions, while improving public health and safety, by decriminalising certain drugs.
Police and prison solutions to the harm of drug addiction are only empowering drug dealers. We need a smarter solution that focuses on prevention, rehabilitation, and community cohesion.
