Abstract

The Disabled Witness Project is an independent research project based at the University of Greenwich, School of Law. It was initially commissioned in 2012. This report is from the second phase of the Disabled Witness Project, the aim of which is to promote access to justice for disabled witnesses of Disability Hate Crime. The research for this report undertook a review of the efficacy of current legislation; examined strategies for the effective policing of Disability Hate Crime, and considered recommendations for the HMICFRS in order to include in the PEEL inspection framework1 for police forces in England and Wales a measure of how effectively police forces are identifying and recording incidents of Disability Hate Crime.
The report is funded by the Peter Harris Trust.
