Victims of hate crime urged to report incidents
Wiltshire Police is urging people living with abuse or hate crime during lockdown to stand up to their tormentor and report any incidents.
"Sadly, hate crime is not something that happens elsewhere. It happens here in Wiltshire, in our towns, in our communities, to our neighbours, our friends, and our colleagues. As individuals, and as a community, we should be respectful and embracing of each other's differences and the diversity they bring.
"As a society, we have come so far in terms of acceptance, education and awareness but there is still work to do. We should all be free to be who we want to be, live how we want without fear, hatred and prejudice – no matter their gender or sexual orientation."
Victims of hate crime can call 101 to report instances or use our online reporting tool: www.wiltshire.police.uk/hatecrime.
