Hate Crime and Third Party Reporting Centres

In some cases victims or witnesses of a hate crime or incident do not feel comfortable reporting the matter directly to the police and may be happier reporting it to someone they are familiar with.

To ensure all victims or witnesses are able to report hate crimes, Lancashire Police works in partnership with a wide support network who perform the role of Third Party Reporting Centres. Staff within Third Party Reporting Centres have been trained to assist a victim or witness in submitting a report to the police and can make sure a report on the victim or witnesses behalf.
