Reporting a Hate Crime
A hate crime is any criminal offence which is perceived by the victim or any other person to be motivated by hostility or prejudice based on a person's actual or presumed disability, race, religion, belief, sexual orientation or gender.
Hate crimes can be reported directly to the police it someone people may not be comfortable doing this themselves, this is where 3rd Party Reporting comes in.
