Derbyshire Friend is now hosting a regular hate crime reporting surgery in-house at the LGB&T Pavilion Centre. The surgery has been developed by PCSO Elaine Porter of Derby City’s Safer Neighbourhoods Team and is running on the 1st Tuesday and Thursday of every month from 6.30pm until 7.30pm. No appointment is needed.
This surgery was developed in order to both increase awareness around what constitutes a hate crime and therefore increase hate crime reporting figures within LGB&T communities and develop stronger links between the police and these communities. Everybody is welcome to attend these drop-in surgeries to report or discuss a hate crime with PCSO Porter and/or another Derbyshire Constabulary officer who will offer any support possible. Specialist staff from Derbyshire Friend will also be at hand to offer additional support where necessary.
The next surgeries are running on Tues 5th and Thurs 7th October – 6.30pm-7.30pm.
