Hate crime

Reporting hate crime and hate crime support

REPORTING HATE CRIMENot everyone is comfortable -or at ease - calling the police. Fortunately, there are different ways to report hate crime:

1. If it is an emergency call the police on 999

This is when:

  • a serious offence is in progress or has just been committed
  • someone is in immediate danger or harm
  • property is in danger of being damaged
  • a serious disruption to the public is likely

If you’re deaf or hard of hearing, use the textphone service 18000 or text 999 if you’ve pre-registered with the emergency SMS service.

If it is not a 999 emergency, there are several ways you can report hate crime
