News and appeals
Police join with partners to raise awareness of hate crime
Police are joining with partners to raise awareness of hate crime and the devastating impact it can have on its victims.
The force is marking Hate Crime Awareness Week (October 9 - 16) with a number of engagement events to encourage reporting of hate crime, and to highlight the work being done by police and partners to address the issue in Sussex.
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 person’s race, religion, sexual orientation, disability or any crime motivated by hostility or prejudice against a person who is transgender’.
It doesn’t always include physical violence – someone using offensive language towards you or harassing you, or posting abusive comments or messages online, can also constitute a hate crime.
Neighbourhood Youth Officers will also be working closely with schools to raise awareness of hate crime among young people, particularly around online offences.
A newsletter will be issued to all Sussex schools featuring resources on how to tackle hate crime incidents with children and teenagers, including issues on extremism and radicalisation.
Hate crime can be reported via our website or by calling 101. In an emergency, always dial 999.
Messages around Hate Crime Awareness Week will be shared across the Sussex Police Facebook and Twitter accounts.

We will listen and act
Sussex’s Chief Constable has said she is “intently listening and ready to act” on the experiences of women and girls across Sussex in the wake of the murder of Sarah Everard.
Jo Shiner acknowledged the crime has shocked the nation and left some people doubting the police, particularly women.

Sussex Police, working with the Office of the Police and Crime Commissioner, will develop a programme of engagement with local communities about the issues raised, to help rebuild trust and boost work already underway.

Chief Constable Shiner said: “The crime was horrific and it has eroded the confidence some people have in the police to protect them. As a woman and as a police officer, this hurts, and I know it hurts my colleagues who work hard every day to protect people and catch criminals.
Sussex Police works closely with other agencies, charities and voluntary groups across Brighton and Hove, East Sussex and West Sussex, to tackle violence against women and girls across Sussex.
Identifying police officers
As a result of the case, officers and staff in Sussex understand some people may require additional reassurance.
If this is the case, they can use their police radio on loud speaker, allowing the police control room to confirm the identity of the officer, that they are on duty and carrying out legitimate policing business.
Off-duty officers intervening in a crime in action or where someone is vulnerable, and not carrying a radio, will quickly call 999 for back up.

Street Safe App
Sussex Police is one of a number of police forces currently piloting a new app called Street Safe.
Launched by the Home Office, the Street Safe app allows women to anonymously flag up the areas in public where they feel or have felt unsafe. The information is shared with the relevant agency for action.
