It is entirely up to you how much personal information you want to give about yourself and whether or not you want to take the matter further.
Even if you choose for the police not to pursue the incident, reporting the incident will still build up a picture of the extent of local homophobic crime and help to provide better support services.
Our aim is to create a safer community and underline that homophobic crime is taken very seriously by the police and will not be ignored.
If you don’t include your personal details then the incident will be used for monitoring purposes only. This means that no action will be taken to investigate the incident. If you do include your details then the incident can be investigated and followed up and you can get the support you need.
In an emergency always call 999
