As part of the ongoing Hate Crime Campaign, Police Scotland are keen to promote the use of Third Party Reporting. Look out for the sign.
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 are able to report Hate Crimes, Police Scotland works in partnership with a wide variety of partners who perform the role of Third Party Reporting Centres.
Staff within Third 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.
In East Ayrshire, the following are all Third Party Reporting Centres:
