Stop Hate in Norfolk (SHiN)
Following its launch in 2017, Stop Hate in Norfolk (SHiN) was relaunched on 5 October 2020. During that time much work has been done, led by Norfolk Constabulary and Norfolk County Council, in partnership with relevant organisations, to embed the principles of SHiN. Work has included a focus on increasing the confidence of people across the county to report hate incidents as well as increasing the number of places where people can report such incidents.
A hate incident/crime is any incident or crime that is motivated by hostility, prejudice or hate on the grounds of race, religion, sexual orientation disability or transgender identity.
Norfolk police have a dedicated SHiN webpage, which provides links to the SHiN protocol, a common standard for tackling hate crime/incidents across Norfolk. Any organisation in Norfolk can adopt the protocol, which is available here
