Hate Crime

Hate crimes are crimes targeted at a person because of hostility or prejudice toward that person’s:

  • disability
  • race or ethnicity
  • religion or belief
  • sexual orientation
  • transgender identity

These types of crime can be committed against people or property and a victim doesn’t have to be a member of the group that the hostility is aimed at. Hate crimes where the law has been broken should be reported to the police.
