Implementing the practice: step by step

The Mayor of London and the Deputy Mayor for Policing and Crime enabled the creation of a hate crime dashboard.

Decisions about data from the courts and Crown Prosecution Service are subject to those agencies' own governance arrangements. To create the dashboard required liaison with criminal justice agencies. They provided the data which was collated and re-formatted into the dashboard’s style for upload to the website of the Mayor's Office for Policing and Crime (MOPAC).

Evaluation of the practice

  • The dashboard process is a new development. There has been no evaluation yet.
  • It will only improve reporting as part of a range of measures to raise awareness. However, by publicising successful criminal justice outcomes, it will promote reporting.

Critical success factors

  • Some conventions emerged as to how data should be presented.

Elements transferable to other EU Member States

  • The development is only transferable to other regions or nations that collect hate crime data that includes crime rates, victim data and criminal justice outcomes.
  • The dashboard can demonstrate the value in collecting such data and making them public.
