Hate Crime Awareness Week 2019

Alert message sent 15/10/2019 16:20:00

Information sent on behalf of Devon and Cornwall Police


Hate Crime Awareness Week runs from 12-19 October.

Devon and Cornwall Police is staging a week of action, events and activities to raise awareness of hate crime and encourage communities to report it.

The force is aiming to raise awareness of what hate crime is, stand by those affected by it, and encourage people to report any incidents.

It is also encouraging businesses and organisations to sign its Zero Tolerance to Hate Crime pledge.

Today we attended the University of Exeter to help spread the message!

Remember, a hate crime is any criminal offence which is perceived by the victim or any other person to be motivated by hostility or prejudice because of a certain characteristic.

This can be a person’s race, religion/belief, sexual orientation, disability, or because they are transgender.

Police in Devon and Cornwall also record and monitor hate incidents/crimes based on sex or gender.
