Bus stop requests for hate crime details

By Robyn Rosen, September 10, 2009

Posters are going up at Golders Green bus stops encouraging locals to report antisemitic incidents during the High Holy-Days.

An initiative of the Community Security Trust, in conjunction with the police, the posters provide emergency contact details for reporting by witnesses to, or indeed victims of, racist activity.

A CST spokesman said: “We are starting this initiative because

we are conscious that the chagim are a time when the Jewish community is particularly visible on the streets in large numbers. We want to ensure that members of the community who are unfortunate enough to witness an antisemitic incident know they can contact us or the police and we will deal with it professionally and sensitively.”
