New law enforcement portal for reporting Westchester hate crimes

A new law enforcement portal for the reporting of hate crimes and bias incidents in Westchester County is now live and operating.

Developed by the District Attorney’s Office, the County Executive’s Office, the Westchester County Department of Public Safety and the Westchester County Department of Information Technology with support from law enforcement leaders like the Westchester County Police Chiefs Association, the online portal is designed to provide faster, more comprehensive and proactive investigations and prosecutions of hate crimes and bias cases.

“Fighting hate cannot be done by one entity, it needs collaboration and I am confident that with the right people at the table this portal will be a powerful tool to stop hate from spreading in Westchester,” said County Executive George Latimer.

To date, nearly 80% of local and state law enforcement agencies with jurisdiction in Westchester County have registered for the portal.
