Hate Crime Officer drops in

6 Oct 2021
  • Local Hate Crime Officer Dee Marr will be attending Letchworth drop in event.

  • ‘Jackie’s’ provide special facilities for people with disabilities.

  • Dee will be on hand for anyone who want more information about hate crime and how to report it.

Local Hate Crime Officer Dee Mar will be attending Jackie’s ‘Drop in Event’ on Broadway in Letchworth, on Thursday 14 October – just one of many events taking place in support of National Hate Crime Awareness Week.

‘Jackie’s’ provides any adults with disabilities, with their own specific venue. The drop in will run from 11am – 3pm and will give anyone with any kind of disability, the chance to try out the facilities which include a café, art, music computer, sensory and games rooms.

“The centre provides much needed facilities and support and I was delighted to be invited along to the drop in,” explained Dee. “I will be on hand to give help and advice to anyone who has been a victim of a hate crime or incident, due to their disability, or who would like more information about our work in this area.

“A disability related incident or crime is any incident or crime which is perceived to be based on prejudice towards a hatred of the victim because of their disability or is so perceived by the victim or any other person.

“Sadly, disability crime continues to be an issue and we want people to know that we take it very seriously and have specialist support for those who have been affected by it. No one should suffer in silence and I will have lots of information and advice on hand, and of course you can arrange a time to speak to me privately if needs be. Please drop in and see what support is available.”

The National Hate Crime Awareness Week runs from 9- 16 October.
