Police and Crime Commissioner for West Yorkshire | WYPCC

Hate Crime

Hate crime is any incident which is, or is perceived to be, motivated by prejudice based on a person’s disability, race, religion, gender identity or sexual orientation, as well as other elements of an individual’s identity. No-one should have to live with the fear, anxiety and consequences of hate crime, and we will keep working with partner organisations to raise awareness of its impact and address underreporting. People need to recognise what hate crimes are, how to report them, and who they can contact to get the support that they need if they become a victim. I will work to support these objectives, through channels such as the Safer Communities Fund, which supports work at grassroots level.

Hate Crime Priority Plan

So that we can all understand more about what we are doing together and want to do together to deliver on our priority areas of work we have developed our 'Priority Plans'.

These plans will be refreshed and renewed and are work in progress but we will report on our delivery against these Priority Plans in public facing Community Outcomes Meetings.

We want to demonstrate the difference we are making in our communities but we also want to know what else we could be doing to keep people in West Yorkshire safe and feeling safe.

If you have a positive contribution to make to our Priority Plans please contact the office.
