HATE CRIME NETWORK
A hate crime is a crime someone commits against you because of:
- Your Religion
- Your Gender Identity
- Your Disability
- Your Sexual Orientation
- Your Race
If you have suffered name calling or physical violence then you can report this.
Types of hate crime might be:
- Name Calling
- Physical Abuse
- Or even if you feel that someone is being hostile towards you
If anyone is doing any of the above to you then please report it.
The MK Anti Hate Crime Group is a multi agency partnership that works to raise awareness, encourage reporting, support individuals or groups who have experienced hate crime and prevent reoffending.
Hate Crime is any criminal offence which is targeted at someone because of a hostility towards their real or perceived; disability, gender identity, race, religion or sexual orientation. This can be anything from name calling to graffiti to assault. It is hugely under reported as those who experience it can feel uncomfortable reporting to the police, maybe don’t think it is important enough to report or don’t even realise what is happening.
We recognise that those who experience hate crime can very often feel isolated whilst those who commit hate crime can often escalate their behaviour. For these reasons we strongly encourage reporting so that we can support those who experience it and intervene with those who have committed it to prevent re-offending.
You can report in a variety of ways, by calling the Police on 101, or 999 if it is an emergency. Or you can contact us on 01908 606828.
