Peterborough Police Re-Launch NoH8 Cards Campaign

As part of Crime Prevention Week 2017 and the Service’s ongoing efforts to improve the reporting of hate crimes, we are relaunching our NoH8 Campaign. The Peterborough Police Service was a leader in capturing both hate biased incidents as well as hate biased crimes, and continues to work in collaboration with many partners to improve community safety and well-being through various crime prevention and reporting strategies.

“There is always opportunity to improve reporting. We have heard from the community that there can be uncertainty as to what defines a hate crime and how to report it,” explains Peter Williams, Community Development and Engagement Coordinator, Peterborough Police Service.

“We take these incidents seriously and engaged community partners in the revision of these cards to create something that is educational and empowering. If you see it, report it.”

The NoH8 cards provide contact information for those wanting to report a hate incident. The cards also provide contact information for people looking for related community supports.

“We thank residents for their continued commitment to community safety and wellbeing. We know that creating a safe and thriving community is a partnership between the public and the police,” says Mr. Williams.

We remind the community to always call 9-1-1 in an emergency. To report a non-emergency crime please contact our non-emergency line at 705-876-1122 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS or Crime Stoppers

Cards will be distributed through police and other partners as part of this awareness campaign.
