Edinburgh people name the biggest crime issues facing the city

We asked our readers what problems in their neighbourhood they would you like the police to tackle and they highlighted many local issues – including pavement parking, anti-social behaviour and a lack of regular police patrols on the streets.

Others issues raised included speeding, littering, bike thefts and parking at schools. They also raised concerns about cyclists and people using electric scooters across Edinburgh.

A Police Scotland spokesperson said: "We are committed to listening to the views of the public. We police with the consent of our fellow citizens and it is important that public engagement informs how we deliver and prioritise services.

​“To better understand everyone's view and attitude towards our policing, Police Scotland needs insight from all communities. We want to hear your views, your perspective. Your feedback will help to shape our priorities.”
