Hate/Bias Crimes

Hate crimes are criminal offenses that are motivated to some extent by the offender's bias. Unlike traditional criminal offenses that victimize individuals, hate crimes victimize entire groups and are highly traumatic for both individuals and communities. Making hate crime data open can help local communities understand that these crimes are being treated seriously, narrow the reporting gap and diminish other challenges associated with hate crimes, and improve the public’s understanding of hate crimes nationwide. Recognizing this, some police departments have taken the initiative to release open data on hate crimes.

The agencies below have all released data regarding hate and/or bias crimes.
