PUBLISHED: 07:00 25 August 2017
District bosses in East Devon have given their backing to a campaign against hate crime, which is being led by Devon and Cornwall Police.
East Devon District Council is also inviting members of the public to get involved with the Zero Tolerance to Hate campaign.
Gerry Moore, East Devon’s community safety officer, said: “Any form of crime directed towards a person or persons due to their disability, race, ethnicity or nationality, religion or belief, sexual orientation or transgender identity is against everything that this council stands for.
“If members of the public wish to have leaflets, posters or stickers in connection with this very worthwhile campaign they can be collected from our Customer Service Centre at Sidmouth or by ringing me on 01395 273802 or emailing email@example.com.”
