Hate crimes recorded by police

National developments

The Department of Justice Office of Community Oriented Policing Services is a partner in a collaborative effort - the Police Data Initiative - that includes 54 state and local law enforcement agencies that have pledged to collect and share data on hate crimes in their communities with the public, some in real time. The data are shared through the initiative's website, which also includes practical tips, good practices and lessons learned, compiled in a recent publication from another partner, the Police Foundation, "Releasing Data on Hate Crimes: a Best Practices Guide for Law Enforcement Agencies."
