Gardai received 238 reports of hate crime and hate incidents in the first six months of this year.

From today, such incidents can be reported online through the Garda website in a safe and secure way and will allow for the appropriate response and support to be provided.

Dedicated Gardai will examine these and ensure appropriate action is taken to record and respond to them.

Speaking today, Assistant Commissioner Paula Hilman, Roads Policing and Community Engagement said:
"Access to online reporting enables victims to report hate crime in a way they may feel more comfortable with. We understand that not everyone wants to go to a Garda station to make reports. This facility gives victims the opportunity to report non-emergency incidents to An Garda Síochána. I would urge anyone who feels they have been a victim of hate crime to report it to us. Let’s stop hate crime together.

Superintendent Michael Corbett, of the Garda National Community Engagement Bureau added: "Hate crime is significantly under reported in Ireland, don’t suffer in silence, if you have been the victim of a hate crime please report it to An Garda Siochana , we are here to help you. Let’s stop hate together”

Mr. Dami Babade who reported an incident of a hate crime related assault to An Garda Siochana shared that: "As a victim of hate crime assault I know the importance of reporting to the Gardaí. I’m delighted to support the launch of an online system for reporting it. We need to work together to tackle Hate Crime"
