NEW Video: what is a hate crime and how do you report it?

A video explaining to young people what a hate crime is and how to report it has been launched today.

Created in partnership with North Kent Police, the film explains that a hate crime is any crime against religion, race, disability, gender identity or sexual orientation.

Hate crimes can happen anywhere including online and should not be written off as bullying.

Inspector Neil Loudon from Kent Police said, “It’s a real commitment from us, Kent Police, working with the community, that we’re not going to tolerate hate crime, please report it, it will be taken seriously.”

 

The video provides key information on where and how to report hate crime. From calling 999 in an emergency to having an online chat with Kent Police via their website.

The film, made by locally by start-up company Vyberoom, was created at the recent event called One Night, which brought together young people from across the borough to celebrate friendship and unity.

A copy will be given to every school and youth group to spread the word to their students and members.

The information in the film isn’t just for young people – any adults who have experienced abuse against in any of the areas described are asked to report it to Kent Police.

 

A hate crime can be reported by calling:

Calling 999 in an emergency situation

Calling 101 to report the abuse
