Third party reporting
In some cases, victims/witnesses of Hate Crime do not feel comfortable reporting the matter directly to the Police and may be more comfortable reporting it to someone they are familiar with.
To ensure all victims/witnesses can report Hate Crimes, Police Scotland works in partnership with a wide variety of partners who perform the role of 3rd Party Reporting Centres. Staff within 3rd Party Reporting Centres have been trained to assist a victim or witness in submitting a report to the police and can make such a report on the victim/ witnesses’ behalf.
As a third-party reporting centre, you can contact Amina if you, or anyone you know, has suffered from a form of abuse related to your religion, race, disability, sexual orientation or transgender identity using the form below. Please watch our video if you would like instructions on what to include.
