It’s not OK to be harassed just because you are a woman.
As a city, Nottingham doesn’t tolerate hate towards anyone because of their gender, disability, ethnicity, religion, sexual orientation or sub-culture and Nottinghamshire Police take reports of these incidents very seriously.
If you are a victim of a hate crime or incident, you will be taken seriously and you will be supported.
How to report a Hate Crime:
- In an Emergency – call 999
- Non-emergency – call 101
- Online – www.report-it.org.uk
You don’t have to give any personal details and everything you say will be kept confidential. You also don’t have to speak English – you can simply call and say the name of the language you would like to make a report it and the police will get an interpreter on the phone for you – this may take a few minutes but will happen.
You also don’t have to be the victim to report a crime, you can report it as a third party or as a witness. Click here for more information on safe bystander intervention.
Remember: it’s not just actions, it’s also words.
