Festive Domestic Abuse Campaign

The first domestic abuse campaign for Police Scotland launched on Tues 17 Dec with a strong message to those who commit domestic abuse: Police Scotland does not tolerate domestic abuse. If you do it – we’ll find you.

The festive campaign is supported by a TV advert, running on STV from Monday 23 December to 5 Jan.  The TV campaign is targeting people at home over the festive period, at the time and location of most of our incidents.

As part of the crackdown on domestic abuse and the focus on perpetrators of domestic abuse more than 300 extra officers took part in a day of action, with a focus on domestic abuse on Friday 20 December.

A large amount of social media activity is taking place throughout the campaign period, including victim support messages, messages from the procurator fiscal and Police Officers involved in the domestic abuse task force.
