Hate crime

How to report hate crime

In an emergency – always call the police on 999 if you are at risk from something that is happening now.

The police take hate crime very seriously, so you can also report to them at a later time any incidents that have happened. You can do this online or by calling the police non-emergency number – 101, or by visiting any police station.

More information on reporting crime and how the police deal with hate crime (Metropolitan Police website).
