Police Scotland seek views on local policing in West Lothian and their Football Engagement Strategy


Police Scotland has reached out to the public on two consultations.

Firstly, Police Scotland are asking what their priorities are for policing in their local community.

Everyone’s views across Scotland will be taken on board at a national and local level as Police Scotland want you to help them focus on the priorities that will help communities most.

Police Scotland’s public consultation is being hosted on a digital platform. This allows them to reach a much wider audience than ever before ensuring that everyone can have their say. The online consultation is open all year which allows you to take part when it suits you but also gives the flexibility of being able to re-submit the consultation if your priorities change. You can access the online consultation in English and Gaelic here. Police Scotland will keep update their results on a quarterly basis and make these available on their website.

Secondly, Police Scotland have launched a consultation on how football is policed. The survey is anonymous and available online – click here. The consultation closes November 29th.

Police Scotland stated, ”Your feedback will contribute directly to a new football engagement strategy to make sure football supporters and communities are involved in how Police Scotland works at football. The insights from this survey will influence the way the police work. Our main objective is for all football policing operations to deliver safe and secure events.”
