Information sent on behalf of Thames Valley Police

Thames Valley Police are working together with the Hate Crime Network (HCN) to recruit Hate Crime Champions (HCC’s) within the Aylesbury Vale area.
A hate crime is any criminal offence which is perceived, by the victim or any other person, to be motivated by a hostility or prejudice held by the offender. These prejudices surround an individual’s disability, gender identity, race, ethnicity, religion, or sexual orientation.
The HCN, who are funded by the Police and Crime Commissioner, are actively looking for people to volunteer to be a ‘Hate Crime Champion’ in their community, this will help build bridges, encourage people to report crimes and offer support to vulnerable people.
The description of the role is below.
The role of the champions
  • Working to support victims in your area and taking reports of hate crime from people in your community
  • Identifying communities who are at risk of hate crime, discrimination and victimisation
  • Actively engaging with vulnerable communities – developing and maintaining relationships
  • Providing reassurance and promoting community cohesion
  • Acting as a pivotal link between the HCN/police and community.
  • Support speaking at community meetings and religious events
  • Answering the 24hour phone line once a month
  • Feeding information into the HCN/police about possible tensions or concerns in your area.

A/Inspector David Washington from Aylesbury Neighbourhood Policing Team is working alongside the HCN to raise awareness of Hate Crime. If you feel you can help us make a difference and would like to apply to become a champion, or require further details please contact David, details below by Tuesday 9 August.
