Hate Crime Policies (previous and current)

Date of request: March 28, 2022
Reference: 386/22

Request

Can I request any Hate Crime policies within Avon & Somerset Police from 2019 to present.

Response

Please find attached the following documents:

  • 386-22 Disclosure 1, containing our procedural guidance relating to Hate Crime issued in April 2017. This is not the latest procedural guidance held, and contains information that is now outdated. For example, Authorised Professional Practice has now been developed by College of Policing in relation to Hate Crime, which Avon and Somerset Police follow.
  • 386-22 Disclosure 2, containing our Hate Crime Strategy published in January 2018.
  • 386-22 Disclosure 3, containing our latest Hate Crime Procedural Guidance.

We will be reviewing the current policy documents later this year to ensure that the terms used to describe protected characteristics are still accurate and appropriate.
