What defines a Hate Crime and how to report it?

You will be aware that BREXIT debate is heating up nationally in the media and there is a huge interest in it. In light of this we want to ask you to keep authorities informed about any ongoing issues such as hate incidents and hate crime towards victims. Victims are likely to be minority groups from Eastern Europe but this is not limited to those communities, many other communities could also become victims.

Correct procedure to report any hate issues would be by calling telephone number 101 to report any incident that is no longer taking place and is not an emergency, call 999 if it is an emergency such as the victim is being threatened with violence or there is a risk that the victim would be assaulted or property damaged.

Numerous non-emergency matters can also be reported by visiting Humberside Police website : https://www.humberside.police.uk/reporting-crime

We would also encourage all community members to register with My Community alert website which is supported and monitored by Humberside Police, there is a wealth of information available on this website and you can also provide information to the police via this website :  https://www.mycommunityalert.co.uk/

If you wish to report any crime including Hate Incidents and Hate Crime anonymously then please visit Crimestoppers website:  https://crimestoppers-uk.org/

Finally you can also visit http://www.report-it.org.uk/home and report any hate crime there.

Just as a reminder below strands of community are vulnerable to Hate Crime according to Home Office guidelines :

Race.

Faith.

Disability.

Sexual Orientation.
