GPA Scotland is the national association for gay/lesbian and bisexual police officers and staff in Scotland and those who support us.

Our Code of Ethics

We believe:

All human beings are born equal in dignity and rights.

All are equal before the law and are entitled without any discrimination to equal protection of the law.

GPA Scotland shall work with the police service to develop policies, practices and systems that tackle homophobia/biphobia and promote and enable the recruitment, retention and progression of gay and bisexual men and women as members of a minority community. Our Code of Ethics is the principle which determines all that we do.


GPA Scotland is a member of the European LGBT Police Association (EGPA) consisting of 13 European countries (Germany, France, Belgium, Netherlands, Spain, Italy, Austria, Switzerland, Ireland, Norway, Sweden, England/Wales/Northern Ireland and Scotland).

EGPA provides a platform to share knowledge and best practice - working together in order to tackle discrimination facing LGBT people both within policing and externally. In addition to providing co-operation between members, EGPA organise biennial conferences and provides training resources for police forces across Europe.
