Hate Crime was the subject of discussion at the first of a series of issue based roundtable events in 2013 this week, organised by the West Yorkshire Police and Crime Commissioner.

Over 60 people representing public and voluntary sector organisations across West Yorkshire met with Commissioner Mark in Leeds to discuss all forms of hate crime, from  race, homophobic, disability-related, to  religious.

The main focus of the event was to discuss experiences of reporting hate crime and importantly to identify possible solutions for the Commissioner and partners to take forward.
