Six hate crimes recorded every day in Thames Valley

Six hate crimes recorded every day in Thames Valley

 

Today (8/10) we’re launching the latest phase of our Hidden Harm campaign, this time asking everyone to open their eyes to hate crime.

 

A hate crime is any crime committed against a person which is perceived to be motivated by hostility or prejudice towards their:

  • Race
  • Religion
  • Sexual orientation
  • Disability
  • Transgender identity

 

Hate crimes can take place anywhere, even online. They can include threats, intimidation, damage to property and physical attacks.

 

They can have serious long term effects on people – emotionally, physically and financially.

 

Last year at least six hate crimes were recorded every day in Thames Valley.

 

No one should be targeted because of who they are, how they look or what they believe in.

 

If you or someone you know has been a victim of hate crime, or if you have witnessed a hate crime, report it.

 

You can do this by contacting the police on 101 or 999 in an emergency. Or you can contact Victims First on 0300 1234 148 for confidential advice and support.

 

For more information about hate crime or to report online visit www.thamesvalley.police.uk/hiddenharm
