To ask the Scottish Government what its position is on whether the Police Scotland online hate crime reporting form should contain an option to allow "online" to be recorded as a location for incidents.

Answered by Humza Yousaf (13/09/2018):

Police Scotland is currently looking to streamline and improve the online reporting form which may, in future, consider ‘online’ as an option for recording the location for incidents. We will continue to work closely with Police Scotland as we work to tackle hate crime and prejudice which includes developing our approach to gathering evidence around hate crime.

We will publish a new report later this year which will include information on hate related incidents with a race, religion, sexual orientation, disability and transgender identity element.
