Trainee officers have been put on alert after traces of Legionnaires’ disease were found in showerheads at a police college in Fife.
Police Scotland said routine water sampling had discovered legionella bacteria in five showerheads at the Scottish Police College at Tulliallan on Wednesday.
It is understood no officers are showing any signs of the disease.
The showerheads have been replaced and the force confirmed that contingency plans were in place.
The college, which opened in 1954, is used as a key training site with a variety of courses held there, including basic training.
It also acts as Police Scotland’s corporate headquarters.
Chief inspector Rachael Burns said: “On Wednesday, November 16, 2022, routine testing detected traces of Legionnaires’ disease in five shower heads at the Scottish Police College at Tulliallan.
“The shower heads are being replaced and contingency plans are in place.”
