 Published on: 23rd June 2021   |   By: News Bulletin   |   Category: Uncategorized

The LGBT+ community are being encouraged to take part in a survey which will help Hertfordshire Constabulary tackle LGBT+ hate crime.

The survey is being led by Inspector Steve Alison as part of his Master’s degree in Public Services Management at the University of Hertfordshire.

Inspector Alison is the Chair of the Herts Police LGBT+ Network, a support group which provides officers and staff with advice on all LGBT+ matters, whether they are personal or operational. He has worked hard over the years to build better relations with the LGBT+ community and to make the constabulary a more inclusive workplace. 

The survey is open to any members of the LGBT+ community who are aged 18 and over and live or work in Hertfordshire. All answers are anonymous and it will take about 10 minutes to complete.

Inspector Alison said: “The aim of the survey is to research LGBT+ hate crime within Hertfordshire and gain an understanding on the levels of under reporting. 

“We hope that the results will help us to understand the actual levels of hate crime in Hertfordshire. In turn, this will help us to tailor our services for the LGBT+ community.

“Hertfordshire Constabulary is committed to helping the LGBT+ community and so I encourage as many of you as possible to take part in the survey. The more answers we get, the more we can understand how to best provide the support you deserve.”
