Hate Crime Awareness Week 10 - 18 October 2020

Alert message sent 13/10/2020 15:05:00

Information sent on behalf of Thames Valley Police

 At least 6 hate crimes are reported every day in Thames Valley. Could you spot the signs?

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 or transgender identity.  Hate crimes can happen 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.  No one should be targeted because of who they are, how they look or what they believe in.

Is this happening to a person you know? Here are some potential warning signs to look out for:

• Unexplained injuries
• Poor physical or mental health
• Seeming nervous or anxious
• Isolated or not wanting to leave the house

If you think someone you know could be a victim of hate crime, or if you have witnessed a hate crime, contact the police on 101 or 999 in an emergency.

You can also contact Victims First on 0300 1234 148 for confidential advice and support.

Keeping people safe from harm is all of our responsibility.
