Scottish Violence Reduction Unit

The Scottish Violence Reduction Unit is a national center of expertise on violence. Part of Police Scotland, the SVRU targets violence wherever it occurs whether it’s on the streets, in our schools or in our homes. Supported by the Scottish Government the unit has adopted a public health approach treating violence as an infection which can be cured. The SVRU is the only Police member of the World Health Organisation’s Violence Prevention Alliance.

The SVRU believe violence is preventable – not inevitable.

Metropolitan Police

We contribute to making London the safest global city, we protect its unique reputation as an open and welcoming city, and we want Londoners to be proud of their police.

The first duty of the government is to keep citizens safe and the country secure. The Home Office has been at the front line of this endeavour since 1782. As such, the Home Office plays a fundamental role in the security and economic prosperity of the United Kingdom.

Home Office is a ministerial department, supported by 30 agencies and public bodies.

The Scottish Government

The Scottish Government is the devolved government for Scotland and has a range of responsibilities that include: the economy, education, health, justice, rural affairs, housing, environment, equal opportunities, consumer advocacy and advice, transport and taxation.
