Early Breakfast with Jenni Falconer 4am - 6am
A new helpline is being introduced for Brighton & Hove residents to report instances of hate crime.
The new number is 01273 292735. This puts residents through direct to the city's community safety team, a partnership jointly run by Brighton & Hove City Council and Sussex Police.
The service is open Monday to Friday 9am to 5pm (not including public holidays). All calls will be responded to within one working day, in line with the council's victim and witness standards.
The new helpline is just one of a number of ways which the public, communities and communities of interest can report hate motivated incidents.
In an emergency residents should call 999
For less urgent situations you can use the police's 101 non emergency number
You can also report incidents or concerns online at www.brighton-hove.gov.uk/report-asb.
Email the casework team direct on email@example.com This inbox is checked throughout the day and officers receive a notification when a report of hate incident or anti-social behaviour has been received and the customer receives an auto-response to their e-mail
