Strathclyde Police Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender (LGBT) Community Surgery

Back to all Motions

2003 National Lesbian & Gay Conference
1 August 2003

Conference notes that Strathclyde Police has introduced a monthly police surgery within the Glasgow Lesbian, Gay Bisexual and Transgender (LGBT) Centre located in the heart of Glasgow’s city centre. This surgery was introduced in September 2002 with two main aims: to improve the provision of a police service for the LGBT community and to raise the visibility and approachability of the police among the LGBT community.

Conference welcomes this initiative and congratulates Strathclyde Police on the success of this initiative to improve safety within the LGBT community.

Conference agrees to write to the Chief Constable of Strathclyde to congratulate the force and to seek further information on the project, in conjunction with Strathclyde Police and Fire Branch, and advise other branches.

Conference further notes that this initiative was initiated by the West of Scotland Lesbian & Gay Advisory Forum of which UNISON Scotland is a member.
