Response to HMICFRS report on hate crime

Following the publication of Her Majesty's Inspectorate of Constabulary and Fire & Rescue Services 'Understanding the difference: the initial police response to hate crime' report the College has published a statement:

David Tucker, College of Policing lead for crime and criminal justice, said:  "Hate crime can take many forms and has a devastating impact on the lives of people across all communities and in all walks of life, often increasing an individual's sense of vulnerability.
"We recognise that the demands on officers and staff tackling all forms of hate crime have never been higher.
The College is committed to providing operational officers and staff with the tools they need to respond to hate crime sensitively and effectively to keep the public safe.
"We are updating College training on hate crime and other aspects of vulnerability.
"We have held joint seminars with the Crown Prosecution Service and frontline officers and staff to make sure that there is a co-ordinated approach to bringing hate crime offenders to justice. 
"And we are also conducting research on risk assessment processes with a view to developing guidelines to help identify and manage the risk to vulnerable people more effectively."
