Kent police will be running a Hate Crime Surgery online via the Police Live-chat facility for residents of Maidstone and surrounding villages/wards, the first event being 29th July. Hate Crime is likely to go unreported to some extent and that victims will not always feel confident in speaking either in person or on the phone. Whilst this is not a Crime reporting avenue, this is a new initiative and is an opportunity for victims of Hate Crime, whether reported or not, to have a real-time online conversation, seek support, guidance or any questions or concerns and also those who have questions who have not been a victim. Hate crime comes in many forms – Disability, Sexuality, Gender, Age, Race, Religion. See the poster below for more details.
