Thematic bulletins Hate Crime

The PPS publishes annual statistics on Cases Involving Hate Crime. The statistics are set out in two parts: 

  • In Part One, Tables 1 – 6 present key statistics in relation to cases involving hate crime submitted to the PPS by the PSNI. 
  • In Part Two, Tables 7 - 10 present key statistics in relation to cases considered by a prosecutor to have involved hate crime which was ‘aggravated by hostility’.  

The statistics include caseloads, prosecutorial decisions and the outcomes of prosecutions at court. Each statistical release provides figures for the latest financial year and includes comparisons for the previous financial year. The latest statistics for the 2018/19 financial year (i.e. 1 April 2018 to 31 March 2019) were published on 15th August 2019. Statistics for the 2019/20 financial year will be published in August/September of 2020.
