Online police surgery gives Lichfield and Burntwood residents the chance to discuss concerns around hate crime

Police are holding an online surgery for people in Lichfield and Burntwood to discuss concerns around hate crime.

Staffordshire Police is hoping to run a series of similar online initiatives, beginning with the discussion focused on disability hate crime at 7pm on April 10.

A spokesperson for the force said: “Hate crimes are any crimes that are targeted at a person because of hostility or prejudice towards that persons disability, race or ethnicity, religion or belief, sexual orientation or transgender identity.

“This online surgery will focus specifically on hate crime which is targeted at people with a disability – a disability could mean a sensory, physical or mental impairment. Joining us for the surgery will be colleagues from Disability Solutions.

“We are hoping to hold further surgeries discussing other aspects of hate crime over the coming months.”

People can join the live police surgery online.
