What is a Hate Crime?

A hate crime is any hate incident that constitutes a criminal offence and the victim or any other person believes it to be motivated by prejudice or hate.

We record a hate incident if the victim or another person believes it is motivated by the hatred of someone because of a particular factor. Those factors include:

  • A person's disability
  • Their race, ethnicity or nationality
  • Their religion or belief
  • Their sexual orientation
  • Their transgender identity
  • Their sex or gender

Hate crime can be against the person or the person's property.

Reporting hate crime

You can report hate crime in a number of different ways:

To the police

  • Online using the Hate crime/incident reporting form (Click HERE)
  • Or call us on 101, the force's non-emergency number
  • Report the problem to your local police station or local policing team

If it is an emergency where life is threatened, people are injured or offenders are nearby and an urgent response is required ring 999.
