Hate crimes and incidents are taken to mean any crime or incident where the perpetrator’s hostility or prejudice against an identifiable group of people is a factor in determining who is victimised. A victim does not have to be a member of the group. In fact, anyone could be a victim of a hate crime. Nationally and within South Yorkshire Police, five strands are monitored - race, religion, disability, gender identity and sexual orientation.
If you feel that you have been targeted due to you being or being perceived as being a member of an identifiable group, then please select other and tell us why you feel you were targeted
