Police Scotland  are seeking views to help shape the development of our new Equality Outcomes. Police Scotland has a legal duty, under the Equality Act 2010, to identify equality outcomes every four years to ensure that we can deliver the best service possible for all of their communities and staff.

It is important to them that their Equality Outcomes are representative of the views and priorities of the diverse communities they serve. The survey talks about protected groups – by this we mean people or groups who identify with one of the protected groups detailed in the Equality Act 2010. These are:

  • Age
  • Disability
  • Gender reassignment
  • Marriage and civil partnership
  • Pregnancy and maternity
  • Race
  • Religion or belief
  • Sex
  • Sexual orientation

This survey provides the opportunity for you to provide your views and opinions which will help shape these new outcomes. The Equality Outcomes for 2021-25 along with strategic priorities in the Police Scotland/SPA Joint Policing Plan for 2021-2022 will provide the focus of our work over the next four years.

The survey can be accessed here and should take no longer than 15 minutes to complete.

The survey will close on 16 January 2021.
