Hate incident figures 70% higher
During 2015, 161 hate incidents were reported to the police in Shropshire. The latest report from Fairness, Respect, Equality Shropshire (FRESh) suggests that the level of under-reporting of hate incidents is likely to be within the range of 50% to 70%, making the potential number of incidents as high as 536 in 2015.
The report is the result of scoping research done for the Shropshire Hate Crime Reporting group.
It includes recommendations on tackling hate in Shropshire and contains true stories of victims from Shropshire.
