IACP, civil rights organizations team up to help PDs address hate crimes

By PoliceOne Staff

ALEXANDRIA, Va. — The International Association of Chiefs of Police (IACP) and the Lawyers’ Committee for Civil Rights Under Law (Lawyers’ Committee) released an action agenda to help agencies effectively address hate crimes.

The organizations are encouraging stakeholders to use the “Action Agenda for Enhancing the Response to Hate Crimes” as a guide to respond to and work towards preventing hate crimes.

The agenda includes information on how community leaders, civil rights organizations, and law enforcement can work together to combat hate crimes and how law enforcement can break down barriers in the community to more effectively prevent and investigate hate crimes.

The release of the report comes at a time where hate crimes are on the rise in the U.S.

More information can be found on IACP’s website.
