As a Carer, have you ever come across bad behaviour either aimed at the person you are caring for, or at yourself? This bad behaviour can take many forms, it might simply be someone swearing or calling you names. It could be someone who physically hits or abuses you or it could be someone who deliberately takes or breaks something belonging to you. Some refer to this type of bad behaviour as bullying; the police refer to it as a Hate Crime and it can result in the perpetrator going to prison. To find out more about Hate Crime go to www.westmercia.police.uk/article/1966/Hate-crime.
Local Independent Advisory Group (LIAG)
The main aim of the LIAG is to improve the quality of policing, many victims do not even realise they are being victimised. Some victims are too scared to contact the police directly for fear of retaliation. The police want to encourage victims to come forward and the LIAG will monitor how the police respond. If you think you might be a victim of a Hate Crime there are various ways that you can seek help:
- a) In an emergency call 999
- b) In a non-emergency call 101
- c) Go to a police station or stop a police officer on the beat
- d) Call Victim Support on 0845 3030 900
- e) Call Crime stoppers on 0800 555 111
- f) Report it online: report-it.org.uk
- g) Go to a Safe place – there are many organisations in Herefordshire who will take you in and call the police for you. Safe places Herefordshire list
Valerie Fitch, a registered Carer and Trustee of HCS is a member of the LIAG, if you would like to talk to her about the response you received following a report of Hate Crime to the police you can contact her on firstname.lastname@example.org
