The Romanian Police has established a working group to guide implementation of a number of measures aimed at increasing the effectiveness of hate crime investigations, registration and data collection on hate crimes, and at furthering the hate crime training for officers.

The working group comprising representatives of the Romanian Police, General Prosecutor's Office and the civil society organization ACCEPT has developed a methodology on the investigation of hate crimes, pending approval in 2018.

The Police have been implementing the project "Integrated action for combating hate crimes, particularly against Roma communities and ensuring a high quality standard of police service", funded by the Norwegian Financial Mechanism. The project aims to, among other things, improve structures for addressing hate crimes, train police officers, and learn from experiences of other countries in addressing hate crimes.
