Reporting Hate Crimes Can Make A Difference

REPORTING HATE CRIMES CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE

Hate crime in any form is wrong. This is why it is important that if a hate crime happens to you or someone you know; you should report it. Therefore, we strongly encourage people in communities across the city to report, and have the confidence to do so.

Reporting makes a difference – to you, your friends, and your community. By reporting a hate crime when it happens, you can help stop it from happening to someone else. You will also help the police to better understand the level of hate crime in your local area, and improve the way they respond to it.
