McGhee, Derek (2006) Community safety and lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender communities In, Squires, Peter (eds.) Community Safety: Critical Perspectives on Policy & Practice. Bristol, UK, Policy Press pp. 35-52.

Record type: Book Section


This chapter focuses on the social and political climate in which hate crimes, whether racially motivated or as a result of homophobia, are increasingly being taken seriously by local authorities and police forces in England and Wales. The chapter explores the special place hate crimes occupy in the Crime and Disorder Act 'community safety' ethos, with particular attention being paid to how police forces, especially Hampshire Constabulary, have been attempting to win the trust of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) communities in Southampton.
