New anti-hate crime campaign on B&H buses 

34

Brighton & Hove Buses is working with Sussex Police, Brighton & Hove City Council and community groups to tackle hate crime with a new ongoing poster campaign. 

Anti-hate crime posters are on all buses in Brighton & Hove, encouraging people to report incidents. People can also report them on social media using #NoHateHere. 

Brighton & Hove Buses’ Managing Director Martin Harris, says: “We want people to have the confidence to report all forms of hate crimes and to help us confront prejudice and discrimination in Brighton & Hove. Our drivers’ union, Unite, has also got behind the campaign.

“While incidents of hate crime are low on our network and all our buses have CCTV, every passenger deserves to feel safe and respected on every journey. Each incident that’s reported on our buses will be taken seriously and investigated thoroughly. The perpetrators will not get away with it.”
