Local police force launches new plans to tackle hate crime

A new service for victims of hate crime is set to be made available in the area, a local police force has announced.

Warwickshire Police’s new strategy lays out how the police will respond to and investigate hate crime offences and explain what services victims can expect.

“The world has changed a lot since our last hate crime strategy was launched,” said Chief Superintendent Charles Hill.

“Following Brexit we saw a spike in hate crime reports and concerns around Islamophobic hate crime have also grown.

“This new strategy ensures we are equipped to continue to tackle hate crime and provide support to victims,” he added.
