The impact of hate crime against disabled people is far reaching: police responses need to be more consistent

By Sanah Sheikh

Abstract

The numbers of hate crimes against disabled people seem to be growing although such crimes often go unreported. Sanah Sheikh looks at how some police forces are committed to tackling these crimes and changing their procedures accordingly. But there is a lack of consistency across police forces and information and learning is therefore patchy. Hate crime against disabled people needs to be given more priority
