Answer for Islamophobic crime in Camden

Answered By: 
The Mayor

Please find below the number of Islamophobic crimes recorded in Camden for the period June 2014 - August 2014 and comparable months in previous year.

It is never acceptable for people in London to face an attack on the basis of their faith. Reducing hate crime is a key priority and MOPAC will be launching a Hate Crime Reduction Strategy in the Autumn.

I am always extremely concerned about any incidents of hate crime and I am watching this issue closely. It is important that people feel confident to report all incidents of hate crime when they occur.
