Law Enforcement Officer Programme on Combating Hate Crime
For law enforcement officers to tackle any type of crime, they must first be aware of its existence, and then they need to be armed with the right tools to make an effective response. Hate crime is a prime example of a law enforcement issue where both awareness and the means to respond are often lacking.
In order to fill this gap, the ODIHR, in co-operation with police experts from six OSCE states, developed a training programme for law enforcement officers on combating hate crime.
