A hate crime is any criminal offence which is perceived, by the victim or any other person, to be motivated by a hostility or prejudice based on a protected characteristic.
Our officers and staff are trained to deal with hate crime sensitively and professionally. By reporting it, you may be able to prevent it from happening again to you or someone else.
Remember, you don’t have to be the victim of hate crime to report it. You can report what you’ve seen happening to someone else, or report it on their behalf if they don’t want to.
Report hate crime by:
- Calling Durham Constabulary on 101
- In an emergency always call 999
- If you’d prefer to speak to an officer in person, we can provide a safe and comfortable environment at any of our police stations.
Alternatively, you can report via:
If you do not want to report directly to the police you can submit an online form to True Vision.
