Hate Crime in any form is inexcusable. By reporting hate crime, you can get help and support if you need it.
If you tell someone what has happened, such as a friend, family member or agency, it gives you a chance to talk about what happened and decide what to do next. You may want someone to speak to the police on your behalf or you might decide to report using a different option.
Anyone can report hate crime, regardless of whether they are the victim, witness, or are reporting on behalf of someone else.
There are several options you can use to report hate crime, from reporting anonymously to in person or online.
If you report hate crime, you may help the police understand the extent of hate crime in your area and they can develop a response. This may prevent these incidents from happening to someone else. Reporting makes a difference, to you, your friends, and your community.
