Letter to faith leaders

June 2016: Notice from Met Police about Hate Crime following EU Referendum:

In light of the outcome of the recent EU Referendum you may have seen being reported on the news and on social media that there have been a number isolated “hate crime” incidents across the country.
Any act of hate crime is not acceptable and will not be tolerated. We would appeal to anyone who witnesses or suffers any hate crime to come forward and report it immediately.

Could you stress to your congregations and members the Importance of reporting “hate crime” of ANY form to the police.

If you, a member of your congregation, your venue or anyone you know has been a victim of a crime or incident where you believe it was as a result of your belief or any other Hate Crime, then please report the matter to the Police as soon as possible. In case of emergency please always dial 999, otherwise dial 101 or call your local Safer neighbourhood team.

It is vital to get offences of this nature recorded even if one believes that “there is no point” or for other cultural reasons wishes to not proceed. The reporting of hate crime enables the Police to build a picture of the current tensions being faced by the local communities in Redbridge. This also allows the Police to manage our resources accordingly as our priority remains to keep the you safe
