The Czech Republic regularly reports hate crime data to ODIHR. The Czech Republic's hate crime laws consist of a combination of general and specific penalty-enhancement provisions and substantive offences. The data reported to ODIHR combine hate crime and hate speech. Hate crime data are collected by the Informatics and Analytical Centre of the Criminal Police and the Investigation Service of the Police Presidium, the Analytical and Legislative Department of the Supreme Public Prosecutor's Office and the Informatics Department of the Ministry of Justice. Hate crime data are published annually by the government in a Report on extremism.
The police analysed the functioning of an internet hotline to report hate crimes and proposed changes to be implemented in 2018.
The government-run and Norwegian funded Campaign Against Racism and Hate Violence has produced several methodological guidance documents for police on identification of and response to hate crimes and dealing with victims of hate crimes. Furthermore, the campaign has trained 257 police officers, spokespersons and municipal police officers on hate crimes by the civil society group In IUSTITIA.

ODIHR observes that the Czech Republic has not reported on cases of hate crimes separately from cases of hate speech and/or discrimination.
