Greater Manchester Hate Crime Reporting Centres

In December 2016, the Office of the Police and Crime Commissioner held a workshop for reporting centres, local authority and police champions, which focused on how reporting centres could be supported to deliver an effective service for victims of hate crime.

This report incorporates the feedback from the workshop and outlines proposals for:

  • A: Core commitments (formerly known as minimum standards)
  • B: Staff training package
  • C: Reporting centre support package
