Hate crime

Online reporting

We understand that victims and witnesses of hate crime may not always feel comfortable reporting directly to the police, so you can report online through the True Vision website, which all police forces in England, Northern Ireland and Wales are signed up to. This allows you to report a hate crime through the website, which will then be dealt with by dedicated hate crime officers. The online report will then be forwarded to the relevant local police force for further investigation.

True Vision provides information about what hate crime is, why it is important to report it when it happens and sets out the range of ways hate crimes can be reported. The site also provides links to organisations that can offer support and advice on hate crime related issues.

Alternatively, incidents of hate crime can be reported to the police via the non-emergency number by dialling 101.

In an emergency, where there is an immediate threat to life or property, always dial 999.
