We are pleased that Tim Passmore, Police & Crime Commissioner, has indicated that, subject to a satisfactory business case, he will again commission a Hate Crime Partnership, led by Victim Support, to deliver services to victims and witnesses of hate crime. Suffolk Hate Crime Service will continue to work in partnership with the Hate Crime Partnership, to ensure that victims and witnesses within Suffolk continue to receive a high level of expert support.
