Inverness-based firearms officers have spoken exclusively to MFR News about carrying out routine police duties while armed. Highland politicians say they're concerned about safety and public relations. But Police Scotland say armed police are not creating a barrier between law enforcement and the public. The force is meeting Highland Council today to explain why officers armed with guns are being deployed to 'everyday' duties.
