||Reporting incidents assists the police in
addressing homophobic / transphobic crime. The
information you provide is valuable, it enables
the police to identify areas of concern,
patterns of behaviour and could possibly help
catch / prosecute offenders. If left unreported,
the offenders are free to repeat similar
offences, and think they can get away with this
sort of offence because they won’t get reported.
You do not have to be the victim to report an
incident: If someone you know is a victim, or if
you witness such an incident then please report
it. Any person can say it's homophobic - The
incident need not be a crime - No incident is
trivial - The police will record all homophobic
incidents and crimes.
