What is a Hate Crime
A hate crime is a crime in which the perpetrator's conduct is
motivated, in whole or in part, by hatred, bias, or prejudice,
based upon the actual or perceived race, colour, religion, national
origin, gender, age, disability, or sexual orientation of another
individual or group.
The District Council believes that domestic violence, racial or
religious harassment, homophobic abuse/crime and elder abuse are
all hate crimes and should not be tolerated.
Hate Crime Reporting
Bassetlaw District Council is working closely with the
Bassetlaw, Newark & Sherwood Community Safety Partnership to
reduce all hate crimes and provide an appropriate response to

prejudice and hatred on the grounds of race, religion, faith or
belief, disability, gender and sexuality.
