What is Hate Crime?

A Hate Crime is any Hate Incident (see below) which constitutes a criminal offence and is perceived by the victim, or any other person, as being motivated by prejudice or hate.

 

A Hate Incident is any incident (regardless of whether it constitues a criminal offence) perceived by the victim, or any other person, as being motivated by prejudice or hate.

 

All hate incidents should be reported so that the Police can use the information to identify trouble spots and prevent the problem getting worse.

By tackling this type of crime together we hope to make North Wales a safer place to live.

 

Reporting Hate Crime

We have two ways for people to report hate crime without visiting a police station or talking to a member of police staff.

 

 

REMEMBER: if it is a life threatening emergency call 999 or, when it is less urgent, call 101 from within Wales.
