Third Party Recording
Liverpool Arabic Centre is a Third Party Reporting Centre which means we can complete Third Party Reporting forms for anyone who wants to report or record a hate crime incident which has taken place against themselves or others.
- To report an incident and have it investigated you must include your details on the form which will then be sent to Merseyside Police.
- If you do not want to provide your details the incident cannot be investigated but the form can still be sent to the police and help tell them about hate crime that is taking place in a specific area or of a specific nature.
Any type of Hate Crime can be recorded including damage to property, assault, verbal abuse and harassment. Email
Anne Thwaite or phone the centre and ask to be referred to Anne.
