Home Office seek licensing help to fight hate crime 16th October 2018

The Home Office has launched its action plan against hate crime.

In the plan, the Home Office outlined plans to rely on taxi, private hire and SIA licence holders to identify and report instances of hate crime:

“To ensure that taxi and private hire vehicle drivers identify and report hate crime in the night-time economy, advice will be included in the Department for Transport’s best practice guidance on Taxi and Private Hire Vehicle licensing. This guidance is scheduled to be updated in 2019 and will be considered for adoption by all 293 licensing authorities in England.

Finally, new guidance for Door Supervisors published by the Security Industry Authority sets out how they can ensure transgender people can have a safe and enjoyable time going to pubs, clubs, festivals and events. This includes increasing Door Supervisors’ knowledge and awareness of transgender hate crimes”
