Anne McTaggart MSP

Scottish Police Launch Polish Website

Motion S4M-13804: Anne McTaggart, Glasgow, Scottish Labour, Date Lodged: 22/07/2015

That the Parliament welcomes the introduction of a new Facebook page, Szkocka Policja, which will post messages and appeals for Polish people living in Scotland; understands that there are around 85,000 Polish nationals living in Scotland, with a large Polish community in Glasgow, and considers that it is important to use all available media to try and focus on issues and concerns that are of interest to them; believes that Polish speakers in Scotland will now have the ability to interact with the police through Facebook in their native language as it will overcome language barriers; notes that this was made possible by the joint efforts of Police Scotland and the Polish Consulate General to Scotland, and hopes that this initiative will be rolled out in more languages.
