Hate Crime Third Party Reporting Centre

The CCS Team are now trained to take initial reports from residents wishing to report incidents of ‘Hate Crime’ on behalf of Cheshire Police.

What is hate crime?

Hate incidents and hate crime happen because of prejudice or hostility based on a person's disability, race, religion, sexual orientation or transgender identity.

Not all hate incidents will amount to criminal offences, but it is equally important that these are reported and recorded by the police.

Hate crime can fall into one of three main types: physical assault, verbal abuse and incitement to hatred.

Residents can attend the Civic Hall and report an incident to the Council Community Support Team in person or contact them on 01625 872238 to arrange a meeting.


Councillor Surgery

You can book an appointment to speak to a councillor at the Councillor’s Surgery (1st Saturday of each month (except August)) by asking at our reception or by calling 01625 872238. As well as a councillor, an office of Cheshire Police usually attends.
