Police Crime Commissioners

Police Crime Commissioners

Categories: Latest News

Monday December 29 2014

A year ago only 4 police forces recorded Islamophobia as a separate category of crime. MEND’s efforts have more than doubled that figure in a year to 10 forces, roughly equating to just under a quarter of all police forces in England and Wales. It is a striking achievement to say the least.

The challenge though has barely begun. With all UK forces starting to record Islamophobia as a crime, the need for a proper training programme for officers to help then correctly identify religiously motivated hate crime, and, most of all, awareness amongst Muslims of the need to report hate crime no matter how trivial, the challenge is far from conquered.
