As part of National Hate Crime Awareness Week, Haringey Police have been engaging with the community to raise awareness of the importance of reporting abuse and discrimination.
Neighbourhood police officers have been working with schools and places of worship to promote a zero-tolerance approach.
Inspector Karl Rogers, who heads up the borough’s community engagement team, said “Haringey Police and Council are taking the opportunity to engage with all communities during National Hate Crime Awareness Week with a strong message that Hate Crime will not be tolerated.”
Cllr Mark Blake, Haringey Council’s community safety chief, said: “Haringey’s diversity is one of its great strengths and is something to be celebrated. There is no place for hate crime against any group in our borough.
“It can have lasting impacts and affects the daily lives of our communities. No one should be attacked or harassed for who they are.”
