What is a Hate Crime?
Hate crimes are any crimes that are targeted at a person because of hostility or prejudice towards that person’s:
- race or ethnicity
- religion or belief
- sexual orientation
- transgender identity
This can be committed against a person or property. A victim does not have to be a member of the group at which the hostility is targeted. In fact, anyone could be a victim of a hate crime.
What is a Hate Incident?
Hate Incidents can feel like crimes to those who suffer them and often escalate to crimes or tension in a community. For this reason the police are concerned about incidents and encourage you to report. The police can only prosecute when the law is broken but we can work with partners to try and prevent any escalation in seriousness. We understand that most victims of hate crimes and incidents simply want it to stop. ALL hate crimes are hate incidents BUT NOT all hate incidents amount to a crime.
