Feedback Form: Domestic abuse, rape and sexual crime

Closes 31 Mar 2025

Opened 24 May 2023




Police Scotland values feedback from people we engage with in Scotland’s diverse communities. Outcome 3 of our Joint Strategy for Policing states that "the public, communities and partners are engaged, involved and have confidence in policing".

We are committed to ensuring our services are high quality and meet the public’s expectations. One of the ways we do this is by facilitating opportunities for people to give us feedback about our services. This helps us understand what we are getting right, and what we could do better.

This feedback form is one of the ways we listen to understand public experience with our policing services.

Reporting a crime or providing information about an incident

Please note that this platform is not for reporting crime, providing information about an incident, or asking us for help. To find out ways to contact the police, please visit our website. If you or someone else needs police assistance, please dial 101, or in an emergency use 999. 

What happens with what you tell us

This feedback form provides victim survivors of domestic abuse, rape and other sexual crime the opportunity to provide their feedback to Police Scotland. 

Our own professional Research and Insight team works alongside policing leaders to ensure your feedback is heard and makes a difference. We review responses regularly. This helps us know what we need to do to enhance or improve our policing services and recognise good practice.

We invite anyone who has reported domestic abuse, rape or other sexual crime to Police Scotland to share their anonymous feedback with us. If you have any questions please use the contact details on this page.

Complete in a different way and alternative formats

British Sign Language translation videos are embedded in all sections of this survey and you may find these helpful if you use BSL to communicate.

This activity is also available in Easy Read. The Easy Read version is in two parts. You can download both documents at the bottom of this page in the section called 'Related'. Please make sure you return both parts to us with your answers.

Please use the contact details on this page if you need to complete the feedback form in a different way.

By completing this form, you agree to Police Scotland using your anonymised data for analysis and reporting that will improve the service we provide.
