Our Current Campaigns

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.

 

Summer Safety

2020 is certainly going to be a summer to remember. The coronavirus pandemic has markedly changed our society. With many of us working and spending more time at home, outdoor leisure has become an important part of daily life.

As coronavirus restrictions ease and bars, restaurants and holiday accommodation reopen, personal safety becomes even more important.

Here are a few tips to help you have a safe and enjoyable summer, whether you are at home, at the beach or in the pub.

 

Disability Hate Crime

1 in 5 people in Scotland identify as having a disability but only 4% of reported hate crime is disability hate crime. We know that it's under-reported. Our #DontTolerateHate campaign encourages both victims and witnesses to report all incidents and help stamp out disability hate crime.
