Position and Statements on Hate Crime
A hate incident is defined as being any incident – it may not may not be a criminal offence - which is believed by the victim or any other person as being motivated by prejudice or hate.
Hate crime can be particularly nasty, confusing and frightening because someone may be persistently targeting you either with insults, threats or physical attacks.
There may also be difficulties in reporting such incidents because of language or cultural barriers or other vulnerabilities but be assured that we can and will do everything we can to help you and where possible prosecute offenders.
Hate crime cannot, should not and will not be tolerated in Norfolk and we would encourage you to contact us if you are being targeted or if you know of someone else who is a victim.
