|UK Today – News – Glasgow – UK|
|Police Scotland’s planning ahead of two public processions due to take place in Glasgow City Centre tomorrow, is now complete.|
Assistant Chief Constable Bernard Higgins said:
“Extensive planning has taken place all this week and a comprehensive
policing operation will be place for before, during and after the public
processions planned for Glasgow City Centre tomorrow, Saturday, 7 September 2019.
“Without going into specific numbers, I can confirm that we will have a
significant deployment of conventional and specialist resources across
“Police Scotland has to balance the right of people who wish to take part
in the processions, under the conditions agreed by Glasgow City Council, and those who wish to protest peacefully and lawfully.
“I am appealing that that those taking part should do so in a peaceful and lawful manner, which will allow us to facilitate the rights of all in terms of freedom of expression.
“I want to re-emphasise that anyone intent on becoming involved in any kind of anti-social or criminal behaviour will be dealt with promptly.”
