A new campaign is encouraging residents of Richmond, B.C., to report incidents of hatred and racism directly to police in real time.

While a person’s instinct may be to film an interaction and post it on social media, RCMP are calling on the public to report racially motivated incidents as they occur.

“All too often we are learning of hate-motivated incidents through second-hand reports in the news and on social media,” Chief Supt. Dave Chauhan said in a news release.

“But in order for our investigators to give these allegations the fulsome attention they deserve, we need to speak directly to victims and witnesses.”
