Not part of the job

Over the past five years assaults on police officers and staff have increased by over 22%. Between April and June 2020, there have been 1,775 reported assaults on officers and staff, that’s around 20 a day.

Our officers and staff are here to keep you and your community safe. Abuse, assault, violence and injury are not part of the job.

Aggressive or threatening behaviour or verbal abuse towards Police Scotland officers and staff is an offence and may result in your arrest.

Disability Hate Crime
