Report a hate crime

When reporting a hate crime you should:

  • remember no incident is too small to report,
  • report it as soon as possible,
  • write down everything that happened during the incident including time, date and place,
  • not touch anything that may be classed as evidence, such as weapons used, etc,
  • a friend or family member can also report hate crime on your behalf.

All reports are taken extremely seriously and in the strictest confidence; if you prefer your report can be kept anonymous and you will not be asked for any personal details.
