The campaign aims to reduce domestic violence over the festive period
Officials at this weekend's league and cup football matches in Scotland have worn white ribbon badges in support of a campaign against domestic violence.
The gesture marked the start of a drive by police forces to clampdown on domestic abuse over the festive period.
Adverts promoting the campaign also appeared in programmes for Scottish Premier League fixtures on Saturday.
Police forces have promised "robust enforcement activities" during the campaign from December 1 to January 31.
These will see rapid responses to reported and suspected incidents of domestic abuse and detention of offenders in custody prior to court appearances.
There will also be strict enforcement of bail conditions through visits to households from which suspected offenders are banned.
Assistant Chief Constable Iain Livingstone, from Lothian and Borders Police, is the spokesman on domestic abuse issues for the Association of Chief Police Officers in Scotland (Acpos).
He said: "We are determined to identify offenders and bring them to justice. Domestic abuse affects numerous people throughout Scotland regardless of age or gender and it is totally unacceptable.
"There is never any excuse for resorting to violent behaviour against your partner and domestic abuse, whether physical, emotional or financial, will not be tolerated in Scotland.
"Domestic abuse damages current and future generations and the police service in Scotland is committed to combating it in all its forms."
