Report it

What happens next

Will I be contacted if I send a report?


If you provide contact details, you will receive a letter confirming that your report has been received and informing you that either there will be no further action, or asking to arrange a phone call or visit with you. This will depend on the nature of the incident you have reported.

What happens to the information I submit?


Once you send your report, the information you give us will be used for 2 purposes:

  • It will give us general information about hate incidents that are happening in the Highlands, such as where they are happening and which groups are experiencing hate incidents. By understanding trends we can improve our efforts to stop hate crime
  • It will also be used by Police Scotland to identify specific incidents that may require us to take some action to bring the perpetrators to justice or to stop any other such incidents happening
