Hate Crime Conference 2015

 

Victims of hate crime, community groups and criminal justice agencies were amongst those present at the Police and Crime Commissioner’s Hate Crime Summit held, courtesy of Derby University, at The Enterprise Centre on Tuesday 13th October 2015.

The PCC was pleased to welcome over 100 delegates to hear presentations from experts in hate crime and the impact it has on people and communities.  This was followed by group participation exercises looking at potential hate crime scenarios and the appropriate reactions.

Many groups pledged action for change as a result of the day and the Police and Crime Commissioner’s office will be working with partners to support their work and see the pledges delivered.  This will be aided by the recruitment of a dedicated hate crime development worker, jointly funded by the Police and Crime Commissioner and Derby Homes.

The findings from the day will help to inform the development and delivery of the Derby and Derbyshire Hate Crime Strategy.
