Report a hate crime incident.

The police and the courts treat hate crime very seriously. Hate crime is upsetting for victims and their friends and families, and creates hatred in communities.  If you think you've been a victim of hate crime, you should report it as soon as possible. By reporting it when it happens to you, you may be able to prevent it happening to someone else. You will also help the police understand the extent of hate crime in your local area so they can respond to it better.

Is it an emergency?

Does it feel like the situation could get heated or violent very soon? Is someone in immediate danger? Do you need support right away? If so, please call 999 now.

True Vision

True Vision is a third party hate crime reporting website supported by all Police forces in England, Wales and Northern Ireland.
