Report a Hate Crime

Reporting to the Police

If you have been a victim of hate crime, and you would like to report it to An Garda Síochána (the Irish police), you should phone your local garda station in advance, and ask to speak with the ELO/LGBTLO who is the dedicated ethnic liaison officer/lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender liaison officer. You can find the number of your local garda station here: http://www.garda.ie/stations/default.aspx. If there is no ELO/LGBTLO in that station, or they are not available, call the Garda Racial, Intercultural and Diversity Office on 01 6663150.
