During Hate Crime Awareness Week (10th – 17th October), partners in Bournemouth, Christchurch, Poole and Dorset will continue to work together to promote awareness around tackling prejudice and hate crime.
Look out for events and activities on Prejudice Free Dorset’s website, Twitter and Facebook page. In the meantime, there are 26 local reporting centres for victims and bystanders to contact to receive information and guidance around resilience and reporting.
Dorset Police continue to be fully committed in responding swiftly to incidents and the Wessex area still has one of the highest successive prosecution rates and to date.
Partner organisations have distributed posters, leaflets, conducted presentations in schools and community settings, produced a short film about how local systems support victims and undertaken training on how to effectively report incidents.
