Police in Glossop to host Hate Crime Awareness Surgery this weekend

Posted on 11th October 2017

Our officers in Glossop are hosting a special hate crime themed surgery this weekend, as National Hate Crime Awareness Week begins.

They are holding the event at Glossop Railway Station between 12 noon and 3pm on Saturday, October 14.

There will be advice and information on hand, and to raise awareness of the law surrounding hate crime.

PC Jenny Oldfield, of the Glossop Safer Neighbourhood Policing Team, said: “We’ve set up this event to give local residents and visitors the chance to come and meet our team, and to talk about hate crime.

“I hope the event will help us raise awareness of the laws surrounding hate crime, to encourage people to report hate incidents to the police, and to feel comfortable approaching officers if they need help.”

National Hate Crime Awareness Week first began in 2012, making it the sixth year of running for the campaign, and Safer Neighbourhood policing teams across Derbyshire will be holding events.
