Leicestershire Police has been praised for its contribution to a best practice guide to committing a campaign tackling hate crime.
The Stand By Me campaign by MENCAP lays out the ways in which police forces can do more to tackle disability hate crime. It also documents a celebration of achievements made by police forces since the campaign was launched 11 years ago.
“I am delighted to hear that over 30 police forces have now taken the step to commit to what is a very important promise. It is vital that police forces listen to local people and deal with the issues facing people with disabilities and make sensible adjustments to their policing services to ensure an equal service is accessible to all.”
