about this item

Hate crime has become a barometer for contemporary police relations with vulnerable and marginalised communities. How do police effectively lead conversations about the problems experienced by marginalised communities arising from prejudice? In a contemporary setting of increasing social division, marginalisation, and challenges to social justice, Policing Hate Crime interrogates the complexities of prejudice motivated crime and effective policing practices.

Drawing upon a unique research partnership between police and academics, this book argues that developing a shared vocabulary between police and vulnerable communities is central to effective policing in this domain. Entwining current law enforcement responses with key debates on the meaning of hate crime this book addresses a gap in the literature on hate crime and policing.
