Hate crimes are any crimes that are targeted at a person because of hostility or prejudice towards that person:
race or ethnicity
religion or belief
This can be committed against a person or property.
A victim does not have to be a member of the group at which the hostility is targeted. In fact, anyone could be a victim of a hate crime. For more detailed definitions of hate crimes, please visit the True Vision website.
How to report a hate crime.
In an emergency, please call 999; if the call is not urgent, call 101.
If you are a victim of hate crime, you can contact ‘third party reporting centres’ across Barnet who can offer you support, give you details of specialist support agencies, and give you further information about Third Party Reporting Centres. Find out more here.
