Hate crime


Racism is 'Any incident which is perceived to be racist by the victim or any other person. The incident does not have to be a crime for you to report it. The main types of incident are:

  • Assault - when someone is physically attacked
  • Damage - when property is damaged e.g. broken window
  • Abuse - when verbal abuse is given e.g. name calling
  • Harassment - continual nuisance however minor

These are just a few, racism can come in many more forms.

You can report hate crime online.
