Hate Crime and Cyber Crime
Reporting hate crime
Hate crime can be reported anonymously and confidentially to Crimestoppers on 0800 555111.
Hate crime is motivated by prejudice based on a persons characteristics, such as race, gender, sexual orientation, disability or religion. Typical incidents include physical or verbal abuse, offensive literature, graffiti and criminal damage. It can have a major impact on the life of the victim and the wider community, which is why it’s important to report it.
