Combating Hate Crime

A POP-UP shop in Redditch offering advice and information about hate crime has been hailed as a success.

Coun Joe Baker, Redditch Borough Council’s Portfolio Holder for Community Safety and Regulatory Services said: “This was a great event that the community partnership put together. Incorporating theatre and information to show people the seriousness of hate crime, how to report it and that it is not acceptable in our community. Redditch Borough Council operates a zero tolerance when it comes to hate crime, which I fully support.”
