The police in Hertfordshire have dedicated Hate Crime Officers, who deal with hate incidents and offer support to victims of hate crime.
They can meet victims in a place where they feel comfortable and safe, explain options and assist them throughout an investigation, or if the case goes to court.
The police also have specially trained LGBT+ Liaison Officers who provide support to people from the LGBT+ community. They work to encourage the reporting of hate crimes and give advice and support to victims and witnesses.
You can request the support of a Hate Crime Officer or LGBT+ Liaison Officer when you report to the police in Hertfordshire.
