What are Hate Crime and Incidents?

A Hate Crime is a criminal offence that is motivated by prejudice, discrimination, and hostility towards an individual’s identity or perceived identity. These can include; disability, gender identity, race, sexual orientation, religion, or any perceived difference. Whereas, a hate incident is any incident in which the victim or third party's belief is based on someone’s prejudice towards them but does not amount to a criminal offence. 

Hate crimes include:

 - Verbal Abuse
 - Displaying or circulating discriminatory literature on posters

Hate Incidents include:
