Abstract

Hate crime is a serious problem in England and official figures do not give a complete picture of the level of this type of crime. Neighbouring areas in London, with similar deprived characteristics, may have very different levels of reported hate crime. We have been researching in two multi-ethnic and multi-cultural areas in London the levels of confidence of minority groups to report this type of crime and also levels of 'hate' amongst groups of offenders. In some areas the official level of hate crime is increasing but in one very disadvantaged area it has dropped by 46%. We are researching why? From this we are developing models of good practice, working closely with the local community safety teams and crime reduction partnerships.
