Title:Hate Crime Crack Down

Residents of Doncaster are this week being reminded that hate crime will not be tolerated in the town.

Over the last three years, sixteen hate crime reporting centres have been established in community buildings across the borough, where residents can report any offences ; anonymously if they wish.

Hate crime is defined as any offence or behaviour where the victim is targeted because of their gender, gender identity, sexual orientation, age, ethnicity, race, religion or appearance. It can take the form of physical assault, emotional bullying, harassment, insults and more.

‘Hate crime is traditionally under-reported, and many people may have been a victim, and not even realised that they have been’, said Councillor Glyn Jones, Cabinet Member for Housing, Equalities and Cohesion . ‘‘We want to let people know that this kind of behaviour will not be tolerated and that action will be taken.’

The hate crime reporting centres range from community centres to civic buildings, libraries and housing offices, where fully trained staff are on hand to take down details.

‘We would encourage anyone who has experienced discrimination to come forward and access this new service’, said Councillor Jones. ‘ Staff are trained and ready to receive information, and support and help is available’

All staff have recently received refresher training to ensure that they are able to recognise hate crime, and if people are unsure of whether they have been a victim, staff are on hand to help them out.
Superintendent Eddie Murphy said: ‘South Yorkshire Police fully supports the crackdown on hate crime. We have a zero tolerance approach to this type of crime and work closely with our partners to support victims and bring offenders to justice. The crime reporting centres in the area are there to make it easy for people to report incidents of hate crime and access vital help and support and we are pleased to see them in Doncaster.’
The hate crime reporting centres are located at the following venues and are open during normal office hours.
