What is a Hate Crime or Hate Incident?
A Hate Incident is when the victim, or anyone else, believes an individual was motivated by prejudice or hostility based on one of the following things: disability, race, religion, transgender identity or sexual orientation.
Even if you do not identify with these, you can still report a Hate Incident and it will be recorded along with Hate Crimes.
When hate incidents become criminal offences they are known as Hate Crimes.
