How we deal with hate crime

What is hate crime?

The Crown Prosecution Service defines hate crime as:

  • "Any criminal offence committed against a person or property that is motivated by hostility towards someone based on their disability, race, religion, gender identity or sexual orientation"

We will take action against anybody who commits hate crime (this includes legal proceedings which may result in the offender losing their home).

We will report any criminal act to the police.
