Reporting a Hate Crime (Hounslow Council)

What is a Hate Crime?

A hate crime is a hostile act that is committed because of your race, religion or belief, age, gender identity, sexual orientation or disability.

Hate crime can take many forms:

  • verbal abuse
  • physical abuse
  • graffiti
  • criminal damage to your home or property
  • threats to harm you, your friends or your family
  • intimidation
  • bullying
  • producing offensive printed material about you
  • online and social media

Report it

There are many ways you can report hate crime if you have been a victim of hate crime or have witnessed a hate crime:

To the police:

Call 999 in case of emergency or 101 for non-emergencies

Your report and personal information will be confidential. However, anonymous information about the type of hate crime you have experienced may be shared with the Police to help prevent crime and disorder.
