Our Action Plan and Priorities

The PFD Group will be responsible for the development and implementation of an Action Plan, which will aim to:

  • Extend reporting of hate crimes/incidents across Dorset
  • Encourage agencies to submit monitoring data and to analyse it
  • To strategically develop ongoing publicity campaigns
  • Develop Community Cohesion Tension Monitoring Plans across Dorset
  • Improve support for victims of hate crime
  • Improve support to those persons responsible for investigating and dealing with such hate incidents and crimes
  • Co-ordinate pan-Dorset activities

Our Priorities for 2017 / 18:

    • Redefining and developing third party reporting sites
    • Developing our communication strategy
    • Identifying how we can address barriers to reporting
    • Identifying the range of support available to victims in Dorset and making it accessible
    • Exploring the use of awareness courses to educate offenders
    • Developing a training programme that can be used for and by community groups
