London is known around the world as a place where people can be who they want to be. The Mayor’s Office for Policing And Crime (MOPAC) is committed to tackling hate crime and to making London the safest city in the world for everyone regardless of their race, faith, sexual orientation, gender identity or disability.
Hate crime and hate incidents have a significant impact on victim’s lives and our communities. MOPAC is committed to working with the Metropolitan Police Service (MPS) to ensure that they are dealt with rigorously.
MOPAC will work with the MPS and other partner organisations to increase the reporting of hate crime – by building victim confidence and improve the police response to hate crimes. We will continue to have oversight of the MPS response to tackling hate crime.
MOPAC will consult with victims, including victims of hate crime, to ensure that they have a greater voice in setting policing priorities. MOPAC’s new borough based community engagement mechanisms, Safer Neighbourhood Boards, will have a number of responsibilities; including a responsibility monitor complaints from victims of crime and to monitor crime performance and community confidence in their area.
