Hate Crime Reporting
What is a hate crime or hate incident? A hate crime is a criminal act committed against someone based on their race, religion, disability, sexual orientation, gender identity, or any other characteristic that is perceived as different. These crimes are motivated by prejudice, intolerance, or hatred and can have a severe impact on individuals and communities. A hate incident, on the other hand, refers to any non-criminal act that is motivated by hatred or prejudice.
