Hate Crime – A Comprehensive Overview of Criminal and Civil Action
Hate Crime has become a minefield; it is becoming more common but increasingly tricky to identify.
Determining what action could and should be taken, if any, when resources are thin is also proving problematic.
Primarily designed with landlord and tenant practitioners in mind, but suitable for anyone who would like to improve their understanding in this area, this course has been divided into two sections:
Part 1 will break-down the criminal offences, what its components are and will explain how enhanced sentencing works.
Part 2 will consider the different non-criminal sanctions available to housing associations, local authorities, police, other local agencies and individuals such as civil injunctions, dispersal powers, community protections notices et al.
In addition, Part 2 will also explain what the community trigger threshold is, what you should consider when setting this and how it works with non-criminal sanctions.
It is hoped that breaking it down in this way, viewers will become well acquainted with what Hate Crime is and more aware of what to do about it in your community, for your clients, in your council, in your housing association and any other organisation exposed to hate crime.
