Community Engagement & Reassurance:


As an Intelligence led organisation, Police Scotland depend on members of the public to come forward and provide information. We like to know the ‘who, what, why, when, where and how’ in relation to criminals who are living or committing crime in our communities.

Nothing should be considered too small or irrelevant, things like names, nicknames, addresses, descriptions and vehicle registration numbers are all very helpful.

All information received is treated confidentially and measures are put in place to prevent the source of the information being identified, before it is shared with Police Officers.  Information received helps prevent and detect crime, disrupt criminal activity and apprehend offenders.
