Police Scotland establishes dedicated team and online portal to investigate George Square incidents


Police Scotland has established a dedicated inquiry team to investigate the disorder that happened at George Square and the surrounding area, on Saturday, 15 May, 2021.

The team will be working extensively in an effort to track those involved and has established an online portal for the public to send detectives any video footage or photographs of the incident.


At present, 28 people have been arrested in connection with a variety of offences and extensive enquiries are ongoing to identify other individuals involved.

Detective Inspector Craig Warren, who is leading the investigation, said: “The public can be confident we are doing everything possible to identify those responsible for the violence and disorder on Saturday. This will take time due to the numbers involved.


"Rest assured, if you were involved in causing this disorder, violence or anti-social behaviour you will be arrested.


"We are reviewing CCTV, video and still images and I would appeal to anyone who may have captured incidents on their mobiles to please get in touch with us.

You may have footage that could help us in our investigation and it’s vital we speak with you.

"The Major Incident Public Portal (MIPP) is now available for the public to send any information, photographs or images directly to the investigation team.
