Police and Crime Commissioner John Dwyer is asking for residents views in his Hate Crime Survey, which is running until Friday 28 October.
The Commissioner is seeking to further his understanding of how to hold the police to account for how hate crime is tackled in Cheshire, as well as why people may be reluctant to engage with the police and report it.
John Dwyer, Police and Crime Commissioner for Cheshire said:
“I represent everyone in our county, regardless of their background or any individual characteristic, and it’s important to me that every resident feels that the police are being properly held to account for the service provided to them and their community.
“As well as asking people about the scope of hate crime, this survey seeks to understand people’s experiences, their knowledge of reporting options and support services, and the reason for any barriers that may exist to reporting incidents.
“I know that hate crime comes in many forms and its impact is felt in a variety of ways, which is why I am looking to get the widest possible range of views and experiences from people and communities affected by it.”
