BTP to tackle sectarianism

Have your say

BRITISH Transport Police (BTP) is set to become the first police force in Scotland to provide all its officers and support staff with dedicated anti-sectarianism training.

BTP was today due to launch a partnership with anti-sectarian charity, Nil by Mouth, less than a week after new legislation aimed at tackling sectarian and offensive behaviour at football matches was passed.

All of BTP’s Scottish 250 officers will take part in a series of workshops and seminars aimed at raising awareness of the issue.
