Scotland's justice and
social affairs magazine

About Us

1919 Magazine covers justice and social affairs issues in Scotland and is published on the first Tuesday of every month. It is a free digital magazine containing in-depth interviews, features and exclusive news stories on topics such as policing, crime, politics, public policy and current affairs.

1919 is editorially independent and the publication is led by head of content Gemma Fraser. The magazine also provides opportunities for freelance journalists and photographers, helping to boost Scotland’s successful media industry. It is funded by the Scottish Police Federation and its ongoing operation is overseen by experienced former journalists Alan Roden and Adam Morris from Quantum Communications and Shorthand PR. An editorial board is chaired by David Hamilton, chair of the Scottish Police Federation.


The magazine’s name is a reference to the year the Scottish Police Federation was founded.
