What To Do If You’re The Victim Of A Hate Crime

“If you’re the victim of a hate crime, talk about it,” Dr. Phil says. “It needs to be dealt with, and you deserve to be properly handled in that situation.”

Dr. Phil says that most crimes that are reported are true, therefore, most crimes reported are believed.

If you are the victim of a hate crime, here are steps to take:

  • Dial 911
  • Document any information as soon as possible
  • Include any details about the perpetrator’s physical appearance
  • File reports with local police department and FBI
  • Get local police department number by calling 1-800-VICTIMS
  • Find support from friends/family and a professional if needed
