Police Scotland circulates security advice

Periodically Police Scotland circulates security advice to different community groups during significant dates throughout the year for varying communities. During this year we have sent out security advice to the Muslim community around the Hajj period, the Jewish community around High Holy Days and the wider community around the festive holiday period. As such we are aware that February sees the Chinese community celebrate Chinese New Year and therefore would like you to share the following advice at a time when members of the community may be away from their homes or businesses for unusually extended periods of time.
