There have been a number of hate incidents reported recently. These have occurred at the Newbiggin picnic area near Junction 42 of the M6. As a result Cumbria Police will be increasing their patrols in the area to offer protection to those meeting there and to prevent further incidents occurring.
If you have been a victim of homophobic or transphobic hate crime please contact the Police on 101 or 999 in an emergency.
If you wish to speak to someone in confidence please call 101 and ask to speak with a LAGLO (Lesbian & Gay Liaison Officer)
You can also report hate crime online via the Cumbria Police website or via a Hate Incident Reporting Centre - a full list can be found at www.cumbria.police.uk

Cumbria Constabulary introduce Lesbian and Gay Liaison Officers
A team of 20 officers and staff from Cumbria Constabulary will take up new roles at the end of this week as they become dedicated Lesbian and Gay Liaison Officers.



Cumbria Constabulary is launching the initiative on Friday 1 February to mark Gay History month, reflect the national policing scheme and, most importantly, to provide victims of hate crime with specially trained Lesbian and Gay Liaison Officers (LAGLOs) who are dedicated to dealing with hate crimes sensitively.



Police in Cumbria work hard to tackle hate crime and these new roles take over from previous LGBT officers to provide encouragement to victims to have the confidence to come forward.



Temporary Deputy Chief Constable, Michelle Skeer, said: “We know that homophobic and transgender hate crime is often vastly under-reported and we hope that Lesbian and Gay Liaison Officers will help us to address this.



“In 2012, there were 36 homophobic crimes reported along with 3 transgender hate crimes. To put this into context, we received 166 reports of race hate crime in the same period.



“We don’t believe that there is a big issue with gay, lesbian or transgender people being targeted in Cumbria – however, these low numbers of reports suggest that victims may not be contacting us, which causes us concern.



“Our new Lesbian and Gay Liaison Officers have received special training to increase their understanding of lesbian, gay and transgender issues. We have a mix of officers and staff who have received this training and some of them are members of the gay community themselves, so are likely to have a better understanding of the concerns that victims may have.”



As well as being able to access LAGLO support by attending any police station or by contacting police on 101, third party reporting centres are also available across the county.



Third party reporting takes away the need for a victim to attend a police station or have any visible presence of police at their home. Instead, victims or witnesses can report incidents at a number of discreet outlets throughout the county. More information on third party reporting centres can be found here: www.cumbria.police.uk/advice-and-information/reporting-a-crime/hate-crime-and-in cidents



.



Staff at these centres are trained to deal with third party reports in a manner that will ease any apprehension, which victims or witnesses may have in making such reports. They can also provide support, advice and potentially act as a link between victims and police.



T/DCC Skeer said: “Put simply, hate crime is unacceptable, so we are doing all we can to tackle the issue in Cumbria. Every incident reported to us is investigated thoroughly and we have measures in place to ensure victims receive the support they need.



“The most important thing is we don’t want victims to suffer in silence. We need them to come forward, confide in us and we will do everything possible to ensure offenders are prosecuted so they won’t be targeted again.



“We are hosting a LGBT web chat on 7 February 2013 to mark Gay History month and encourage people from around the county to log on, ask questions or gain advice from the comfort of their homes. You don’t have to provide your name so all questions or information will be anonymous.



“Please take the time to log on, have your say and help us to stamp out hate crime in Cumbria.”



The web chat will take place between 6.30pm – 8.30pm on Thursday 7 February and will be hosted by some of the county’s LAGLOs. It is hoped this meeting will be as successful as the last LGBT online meeting hosted in September 2012 where 70 viewers logged on, 33 comments were posted from the public and 59 people replayed the discussion after the meeting closed.



Hate Crime can also be reported on-line through the Cumbria Constabulary website at www.cumbria.police.uk or through the True Vision website at www.report-it.org.uk



Victims of transphobic hate crime can also report incidents online at: http://www.tcrime.net



A LGBT webchat is being hosted by Cumbria Constabulary on 7 February. You can join the chat by visiting: www.cumbria.police.uk/lgbt



To contact police, or if you would like to speak to your local Lesbian and Gay Liaison Officer by phone, call 101. In an emergency call 999.

New none-emergency number..101

101 is the number to call when you want to contact your local police - when it’s less urgent than a 999 call.
101 is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

When to call 101?
You should call 101 to report crime and other concerns that do not require an emergency response.

For example, you should call 101 if:

•your car has been stolen
•your property has been damaged
•you suspect drug use or dealing in your neighbourhood
Or to:

•report a minor traffic collision
•give the police information about crime in your area
•speak to the police about a general enquiry

101 has been introduced as part of the government's wider work to improve access to the police, ease pressure on 999, and help to efficiently and effectively tackle crime and disorder.

What is the difference between 101 and 999?
You should continue to call 999 when it is an emergency, such as when a crime is in progress, someone suspected of a crime is nearby, when there is danger to life or when violence is being used or threatened. To contact the police for any other reason, call 101.

What does it cost to call 101?
Calls to 101 (from both landlines and mobile networks) cost 15 pence per call, no matter what time of day you call, or how long you are on the phone.

Why does it cost 15p to call 101?
The 15p cost of the call goes to the telephony providers to cover the cost of carrying the calls. The police and government receive no money from calls to 101.

Everyone calling the police for non-emergency matters now knows exactly how much a call will cost them, and can be assured of equal access whether they are on a pay-as-you-go mobile or a home landline.

Who will answer my 101 call?
Calls to 101 are answered by police officers and staff in the control room of the local police force. This ensures that staff with local knowledge can answer and deal with the calls and respond appropriately.

You will not be put through to a large national call centre.

When you call 101, the system will determine your location and connect you to the police force covering that area. You will hear a recorded message announcing the police force you are being connected to. If you are on a boundary between two or more forces, the recorded message will give you a choice of which force to be connected to.

I am deaf, hard of hearing or speech impaired, can I call 101?
Yes, you can textphone 18001 101.

What if English is not my first language?
Your local police have access to professional interpreters so they can quickly translate your call if you have difficulty speaking English.

What about reporting general nuisance or environmental issues?
You should continue to call your local council for things like:

•reporting graffiti
•dog fouling
•abandoned vehicles
•dumping and fly tipping
•vandalism
For more information on how to contact your local council please visit www.direct.gov.uk

What should I do if the 101 number is currently blocked on the phone at my workplace / college / business premises?
As 101 is a new number, some business phone systems and switchboards may not yet be programmed to recognise 101.
This includes mobile phone networks

Please contact the person who administers your phone system to request that access is opened to the 101 number.

Is 101 available outside England and Wales?
101 is only available if you are calling from England and Wales.
If you need to contact a police force in England and Wales whilst you are abroad, please use the list of alternative numbers for the police forces.
