NRPS Launches #StopHateNiagara Campaign

The Niagara Regional Police Service is committed to ensuring a safe community and the equitable treatment of all who live in and visit the Niagara Region.

Since early 2022, the Niagara Regional Police Service (NRPS) has been working with community partners and the Chief of Police Community Inclusion Council (CoP CIC) on a campaign to address hate related incidents in Niagara.

The NRPS is launching a #StopHateNiagara campaign aimed at eliminating barriers to reporting hate incidents/hate crimes, while also providing further information on the difference between hate crimes and hate incidents.

“The Niagara Regional Police Service takes incidents of hate and violence very seriously and will investigate them through our detective offices as well as our Equity Diversity and Inclusion Unit” said Chief of Police Bryan MacCulloch “we encourage anyone who experiences an incident of hatred to report it to police so that it can be properly investigated and addressed.  Hate has no home in Niagara.”

Hate crime pamphlets with more information can be found at District front desks as well as online at—what-is-the-difference where they have also been translated to French, Spanish, Mandarin, Arabic, Farsi, Ukrainian, Hindi and Urdu. The pamphlets will also be provided to places of worship and community groups across the Niagara Region.
