Isle of Wight neighbourhood policing teams update following Hate Crime Awareness Week

Alert message sent 25/10/2018 14:20:00

Information sent on behalf of Hampshire Constabulary

Last week officers from the Isle of Wight’s Neighbourhood Policing Teams supported Hate Crime Awareness Week.

Along with our partners from the Community Safety Partnership we visited schools, including: Cowes Enterprise College, Broadlea Primary School, and the Bay Church of England School. We held assemblies, raising awareness of what Hate Crime is, and how to report it.

We also took part in community safety events in Newport and Ryde, a training event at Isle of Wight College, and Inspector Tracy Scrase with Anna Murray from Age UK spoke to Caroline Diamond on Vectis Radio.

Inspector Tracy Scrase said: “Hate crimes cover a multitude of incidents and offences which are motivated by hostility, prejudice or hatred towards someone’s actual or perceived race, disability, sexual orientation, faith/religion, gender or age. There can never be any excuse for hate crime in any shape or form and this criminality will not be tolerated.

“The awareness week re-iterated that we want those who are victims of hate crime to feel confident to contact us because we’ll take your reports seriously, protect you, and make sure you get all the support you need.

“Hate crimes are also often reported by a third party. You do not have to be the victim or even know the victim of a hate incident to report it to the police. If you witness an incident, or someone tells you about one, you can report it to us on their behalf.”
