Mayor's Office for Policing and Crime

CATCH is commissioned by the Mayor's Office for Policing and Crime (MOPAC), which is responsible for commissioning victim's services in London. 

 

MOPAC's hate crime dashboard displays up to date statistics on hate crime in London, such as the number of hate crime offences by borough, the ethnicity and gender of victims, and the percentage of reported offenders that were cautioned or charged with an offence. 

[T]oo often people are targeted simply because of who they are, or even who they are perceived to be. Although rooted in conventional criminal behaviour, these hate crimes are different because in whatever form they take, and against whomever they are targeted, they are both traumatising to an individual and deeply damaging to entire communities. Hate crime makes victims of whole groups of people on the basis of their race, faith, sexuality, gender or disability and has a long lasting effect which ripples far beyond the affected individuals. Ultimately, it impacts on the ability of people to live their lives in the way they wish.

 

[S]ociety must change to tackle the root causes. Where hate crime occurs we owe it to all Londoners to work as hard as we can to seek justice and enable victims to cope and recover.
