Hate Crime

Hate Crime should be reported.

This is defined as:-

"Any incident, which may or may not constitute a criminal offence, which is perceived by the victim or any other person, as being motivated by prejudice or hate towards the victim because of their race, religion, sexual orientation, gender or the fact they have a disability."

If you feel that you are being targeted in this way then you should report the incident to the police stating that you feel that this is the case. There does not have to be evidence to suggest the motivation, the fact that the you feel it is motivated in this way is sufficient for the police to deal with, and record the incident as a hate crime. Hate incidents and crimes have a damaging effect on communities and need to be reported in order that the police and their partner agencies can protect other members of the community who may be targeted in this way.

If you would like further information or would like to discuss any concerns please contact the Stockport Partnership Team at Greater Manchester Police on 0161 856 9662 or email them on Stockport.PartnershipTeam@gmp.police.uk.
