First Minister Nicola Sturgeon rejected suggestions there is a police crisis after Susan Deacon, the head of the Scottish Police Authority, quit citing "fundamentally flawed" governance.
Her departure prompted Scottish Liberal Democrat leader Willie Rennie to claim at first minister's questions that the police were "in crisis once again".
Ms Sturgeon did not agree saying: "No. I have to say to Willie Rennie the police is not in crisis and I think it does a disservice to the police officers around the country working so hard to keep us safe to say so."
Scottish Conservative justice spokesman Liam Kerr called on the first minister and the justice secretary to have an "immediate review to learn what has gone wrong with the SNP's centralisation project".
Ms Sturgeon said her government had invested in and supported 1,000 extra police officers for Scotland while numbers elsewhere in the UK were "slashed".
Scottish Labour leader Richard Leonard called on the first minister to apologise over her government's public services "failure", but Ms Sturgeon highlights crime was at one of its lowest levels for decades.
