The Police Service operates an online form where you can inform us about any hate crime incidents. A hate-motivated crime is defined as any incident that constitutes a criminal offence, perceived by the victim or any other person as being motivated by prejudice or hate.
The following motivation types are used to identify and categorise hate crime offences in Northern Ireland: racist motivation, sectarian motivation, homophobic motivation, disability motivation, faith motivation and transphobic motivation.
This site is not monitored 24 hours a day. In an emergency you should call 999.

If you choose not to provide your personal details the Police may not be able to fully investigate this incident. It will however be recorded for monitoring purposes. Any personal details provided will be handled in confidence and in accordance with the Data Protection Act. Reporting incidents will help the Police Service tackle hate crime. The information you provide is important and will enable the police to identify areas of concern, patterns of behaviour and may assist in identifying and prosecuting offenders.
