The SPVM wishes to take this opportunity to remind you of the importance of reporting hate crimes.  We highlight that according to the Uniform Crime Reporting Survey, a hate crime is a criminal offence motivated or suspected to be motivated by hate based on race, national or ethnic origin, language, colour, religion, sex, age, mental or physical disability, gender identity, expression or sexual orientation or any other similar factor. 

If you are a victim or witness of a hate crime, call 911 immediately or report it directly online using the form available for this purpose.  

Thank you for your cooperation as always.
