Hate Crime in Rural Areas survey

Alert message sent 05/11/2018 15:58:00

Information sent on behalf of Hampshire Constabulary

A hate crime is defined as “any criminal offence which is perceived by the victim or any other person, to be motivated by hostility or prejudice based on a personal characteristic, specifically actual or perceived race, religion/faith, sexual orientation, disability and transgender identity”


The Home Office recently released national statistics for 2017/18, which showed an increase in hate crime levels of 17% compared with the previous year, recorded by police Forces in England and Wales.


Hate crime doesn’t just happen in big cities, but living in a small rural community can make it harder to speak up about hate crime. The Police and Crime Commissioner and his team want to make sure everyone has the support they need, no matter where they are. If you live in a rural area and have been affected by hate crime, we want to hear from you.
