How to report Hate Crime.

It is important that we all raise awareness that Hate Crime is not acceptable. It should be challenged and stopped. People should feel confident to report a Hate Crime, incident, anti-social behaviour, intimidation or harassment to the Police either directly or via a third party advocate or specialist organisation, who will take each case very seriously.

Further information regarding Hate Crime is on the Avon and Somerset Police website at:

https://www.avonandsomerset.police.uk/advice/threats,-assault-and-hate-crime/hate-crime/

This includes how to report a Hate Crime or incident.

Report it
Reporting Hate Incidents and Hate Crimes provides valuable information. Evidence that a crime has been aggravated by prejudice can lead to an increased sentence at court.
If you feel you are becoming a victim of hate crime the police would prefer to speak to you directly on the phone (by calling us on 101) or in person at a police station.
To report a hate crime fill in the ‘Report a crime or incident’ form.
By entering your postcode in the ‘Your Area’ section of the above website, you are provided with a link to contact your Local Policing Team. You can also view local events as they are arranged. An example of such an event can be seen here:
