Share your views on the police investigation of Hate Crime
An online survey has been launched by the police scrutiny body as part of their ongoing inspection of Hate Crime.
HM Inspectorate of Constabulary in Scotland is currently carrying out an inspection in this important area of policing and seeks your views as to the effectiveness and efficiency of Police Scotland’s response to Hate Crime. This inspection is not related in any way to the parliamentary process surrounding the Hate Crime and Public Order (Scotland) Bill.
It is recognised that being the victim of any crime can for many be a distressing experience and have a long lasting and enduring impact. When that crime is motivated by prejudice, hatred, or intolerance and where the beliefs, culture and ethnicity of the victim are an integral part, that experience can be even more distressing and have an effect upon the wider community.
The deadline for responses to the survey is 12:00 on 31 October 2020.
If you have any questions about the survey, the inspection or if you would like to provide the inspection team with more information, please email [email protected]
