Report a Hate Crime

We want to know about all incidents of hate, so we’d encourage you to make a report to us.

For example, if someone has shouted a name at you, made an offensive gesture towards you, or committed a more serious crime towards you, such as damaging your property or physically assaulting you, and you believe that it is because of your age, disability, gender reassignment, marriage or civil partnership, pregnancy or maternity, race, religion or belief, sex, or sexual orientation, you should tell us.

How to report hate crime

If you have witnessed or been a victim of hate crime you make a report by:

Hate Crime and Third Party Reporting Centres

We recognise that some victims and witnesses of hate crimes and hate incidents may find it difficult to report the matter directly to us.

We want to remove any barriers to reporting hate crimes and incidents and that's why we work with several organisations who you may feel more comfortable talking to.

These are called Third-Party Reporting Centres.

Staff at the Third-Party Reporting Centres have been trained to help victims and witnesses to submit a report to the police. Alternatively, they can make a report on your behalf.
