What LAPD is Doing to Fight Hate Crimes

The Los Angeles Police Department is committed to the fight against hate crimes. Indeed, the Los Angeles Police Commission has assembled a Hate Crime Task Force composed of Department members and community leaders devoted solely to this task. The task force is responsible for reviewing reporting methods, training, and actions taken by the Department anytime a hate crime is involved. The Department hate crimes coordinator takes an active part at the State level in developing hate crime policy and training guidelines. The Police Department will vigorously investigate and bring any individuals or groups responsible for hate crimes to justice.

If you are a victim of a hate crime, call or go to your nearest police station to report the crime. Any police officer can take a crime report. The investigation will then be conducted by a detective that is assigned to handle hate crime cases.

Hate crimes disrupt community order, hurt neighborhoods and individuals and can not be tolerated. The only way to conquer hate crime is by having every person get involved. Therefore, the Los Angeles Police Department encourages any citizen that has been a witness to a hate crime to step forward and report the incident.
