The Glasgow Gurdwara in Pollokshields has become a 3rd Party Reporting Centre for hate crime.

The Gurdwara, which acts as a cultural, educational and religious hub for Sikhs and the wider community, have been trained by PC Canale from Greater Glasgow’s Preventions and Interventions Team.

3rd Party reporting provides a valuable service in communities, allowing victims of hate crime to report incidents and crime without going directly to the police.

Community Inspector Hutton and Local Problem Solving Sergeants McKim and Smith were on hand to provide their support and look forward to continuing their partnership with the Glasgow Gurdwara.

The Gurdwara serves the whole community by promoting free education services, a free kitchen, faith and cultural services, political engagement, and a range of advice and support services.
