Hate crime

Our zero tolerance prosecution policy for hate crimes motivated by prejudice sends a clear message that there is no room for bigotry and intolerance.
 
Hate crime is investigated and prosecuted rigorously, for instance, using recent legislation that aggravated offences by prejudice and created offences relating to threatening communications and behaviour at football matches. Please see Victim Information and Advice and Hate Crime Publication.
