Equality and diversity
We are committed to ensuring that all residents can live without threats, verbal or physical harassment or prejudice.
We will tackle any unfair discrimination on the following grounds:
- religion or beliefs
- nationality (including anti-English sentiment)
- sexual orientation
We will investigate cases of hate crimes as a priority and aim to start an investigation within one day of being notified of the issue.
The Police Scotland Community Safety Unit gathers information on sectarian, racist and homophobic incidents and crimes of a non-serious nature. Serious incidents or issues requiring an immediate response should be reported by calling 999.
If you'd prefer to report anonymously and your issue can wait then remote reporting may be appropriate. Information on how to do this can be found on the Police Scotland website.
