Crackdown on Cumbria hate crime with new workshops to tackle issues
Last updated at 11:40, Tuesday, 22 July 2014
CUMBRIA’S Police and Crime Commissioner, Richard Rhodes is funding a number of hate crime workshops across the county.
The workshops lead by AWAZ Cumbria together with Cumbria Constabulary, OutREACH and Cumbria Disability Network are delivering hate crime awareness training and workshops for managers, front line staff, volunteers and community representatives across Cumbria.
Police and Crime Commissioner, Richard Rhodes said: “Unfortunately, hate crime happens in our county and we need to have consistency across key agencies in the county to support those people affected.
“The training will bring people together across a spectrum of agencies to gain a better understanding of the impact of hate crime on victims and the wider community. As well as a better understanding of how partner agencies deal with hate crime so that an improved service can support victims going forward.
“I would urge people to come forward and report hate crime. Only by us all working together can we make a difference.”
