Hate crime is when someone physically or verbally abuses or attacks others because of their religion, race, disability or sexual orientation.
If you are a victim of hate crime or have witnessed it, please report it to the PSNI on 101 or use their online reporting tool.
Belfast Policing and Community Safety Partnership (PCSP) are working with its partners on a hate crime media campaign that will centre on the message that ‘Nobody deserves this and nobody deserves to get away with it’.
