Community safety officials in hate crime reporting appeal

Published Wednesday, 7th October 2020

The Hartlepool Community Safety Team is urging victims of hate crime to come forward and report incidents.

It has issued the appeal ahead of National Hate Crime Awareness Week which this year is running from October 10th-17th.

Victim Services Officer Jane Munden said: “It is important that people inform us of issues as and when they occur so that timely action can be taken.

“We are not prepared to tolerate hate crime in any of its forms and support will be provided to victims and witnesses who come forward.”

Hate crime is any criminal offence perceived by the victim or anyone other person to be motivated by a hostility or prejudice based on someone's race/nationality, gender, gender identity, religion/belief, sexual orientation, or disability.

Hate crime can be reported in a number of ways:

  • To the police on 101, or 999 in an emergency.
  • Online at
  • At any one of a network of 3rd party reporting centres which exist around Borough. These are located at:
