On this page, you will find information about Hate Crime, including how to report it, and links to organisations you can approach for support.

Hate Crime is any crime committed against a person because of their:

  • Sexual Identity,
  • Religion or Beliefs,
  • Race, Ethnicity, or Nationality,
  • Disability, or
  • Gender Identity.

Anyone of us can be affected as each of us has an identity, and it is this that is being attacked when a Hate Crime occurs.

Hate Crime can take many forms including name-calling, harassment, and physical attacks against a person or property. It is a crime of prejudice, ignorance and fear.

Reporting a Hate Crime

You can contact our Anti-Social Behaviour Officer via the details at the side of this page. Our officer will log the complaint, which in turn will be included in Hate Crime statistics compiled by Leicestershire County Council. If you wish to take more affirmative action, please contact the Police via 101.

In cases of emergency, dial 999. Our local Hate Crime Police Officer is located at the Community Safety Bureau at Police Headquarters, St John's, Enderby and can also be contacted via 101.
