Presumably "Victims First" cater specifically to "hate crimes" …

Stand in the queue and wait your turn if you've been mugged, burgled or had your car vandalised or stolen.

Victims First get priority.

A really good mid week !
The Action Fraud website and reporting tool, has had a major revamp, making it is easier to report online !
Action Fraud, provides a central point of contact for information about fraud and financially motivated internet crime, as well as the place to report Frauds.
Monday was the start of two weeks of activity, aimed at raising awareness of ‘Hate Crime’, as part of the force’s ongoing ‘Hidden Harm’ campaign.
We want to help everyone, to understand exactly what a Hate Crime is and encourage victims and witnesses, to come forward and report this type of abuse.
The campaign aims to raise public awareness of all types of Hate Crime, reminding people that we will not tolerate, any kind of abuse.
Local support is vital to the campaign's success, so please help spread our messages where possible.
Summary and Definition of a ‘Hate Crime’
The CPS state that ‘nobody should feel like they are being picked on, singled out, or mistreated, because of who they are, or because they belong to a particular group’.  A Hate Incident, or a Hate Crime, creates fear and humiliation, where there is hostility to an individual.
Hate Crime can take many forms including:
Physical attacks, such as physical assault, damage to property, offensive graffiti and arson.
Threats of attack, including offensive letters, abusive, or obscene telephone calls, groups hanging around to intimidate, and unfounded, malicious complaints.
Verbal abuse, insults or harassment - taunting, offensive leaflets and posters, abusive gestures, dumping of rubbish outside homes, or through letterboxes, and bullying at school, or in the workplace.
A Hate incident, is defined as any non-crime incident, perceived by the victim, to be motivated by race, sexual orientation, religion or belief, disability, or transgender.
A Hate crime, is defined as any criminal offence, perceived by the victim, to be motivated by a hostility, or prejudice, based on a person’s role, religion, sexual orientation, disability, or transgender.
Communications via social media can on its own, be, or contribute to, a Hate Crime or Hate Incident by way of harassment, stalking, or the distribution of written, or visual images.
There are four categories of ‘cyber communication offences’, as follows:
1. Communications that may constitute threats of violence to a person, or property.
2. Communications targeting specific individuals.
3. Communications that may breach a court order or statutory prohibition.
4. Communications which are grossly offensive, indecent, obscene or false.
There is no requirement for communications to reach the intended recipient, or for them to be offended, once it is received.
Communications Act 2003
Section 127, refers to an individual sending a public electronic communication, for the purpose of causing annoyance, inconvenience, or needless anxiety, to another. This includes:
Sending a message, known to be false.
Publishing, or sending material that is grossly offensive, indecent, or of an obscene, or menacing character.
Persistently sending, or publishing, material that may cause an offence, or harm, to another.
A person found guilty, can be subject to imprisonment for a maximum of 6 months.
Malicious Communications Act 1988
Section 1, discusses any article, or electronic communication, which is in whole or part, of an indecent, or grossly offensive nature, which causes distress or anxiety, to the recipient, or to any other person, who is subject to the communication. A person guilty of this offence, can be subject to imprisonment, for a maximum of 2 years.
I hope this brief outline helps.
I put a message out from Julietta, who wanted a ‘Common Sense’ course for her daughter ??
I have had this response from Leo:
Good Afternoon
I run a local martial arts club in Windsor NFM.  We are very interested in helping out. I know they said they did not want to join permanently, which is not a problem, we are happy to set up a class just for this event.
Kind Regards
If anyone else would like their young children - early teenagers - to share this experience, just let me know.  I can probably get PC Graham Slater to attend to do an input on online safety / sexting, along with a representative of the safeguarding Team who can talks about the issues around CSE and trafficking - (a person can be ‘trafficked’ if they are taken from a pub / club, to a nearby car park !).  I may even be able to get Theresa Allen who is a Young Person’s Substance Misuse Worker - Both Graham & Theresa are brilliant.  They talk to them, exactly at their level !
As Leo has named this project a ‘Youth Safety Roadshow’.  For me to progress this, I need to know if it is viable, numbers wise ?  Over to you.
29/9 - 8/10  Clivemont Road.  Rear light bar stolen from a white Sprinter van.
9/10  Tuesday 6 p.m.  Grenfell Place.  Locked up bike in a bike rack stolen.  A black & green, Carrera, man’s mountain bike.
