Answered By:

Hate crimes are reported directly to the MPS or via one of a number of third party reporting partners such as the CST, Tell Mama, Galop and Stop Hate UK.  The MPS crime recording system CRIS is used to store all records of hate crime offences and incidents.

Once the classification of the offence has been confirmed, a count of these is extracted and figures are collated in line with the Home Office Counting Rules.
