Understanding the difference: the initial police response to hate crime (9164)

Recommendation

In our view, forces don’t gather and use intelligence about hate crime consistently enough. This means forces don’t have enough information to understand fully how different groups are victimised and make sure that officers make effective decisions about how to respond.

We recommend that chief constables make sure officers know it is important to find and record more intelligence about hate crime and use it to inform the police response
