Hate Crime incidents reported

Monitoring

Hate crimes have historically been under-reported and so, for this measure, it is considered that increasing reports are perceived to be positive. The numbers of hate crimes reported has fluctuated over the last two years, though the highest reported figure was in June 2017.

Between July and September 2017, 61 hate crimes were reported. This is a fall from the high of 78 when this measure was last reported, though is still the second highest figure in the last two years.
