- Hate Crime Data Collection Guidelines and Training Manual (pdf)
This document is designed to assist law enforcement with collecting and submitting data on bias-motivated offenses to the FBI’s UCR Program. The manual includes guidance concerning gender and gender identity biases as mandated by the Matthew Shepard and James Bryd, Jr. Hate Crimes Prevention Act of 2009, 18 U.S.C. Section 249. It also addresses policy, the types of bias crimes to be reported, how to identify a hate crime through training scenarios, and guidelines for reporting hate crime. The manual—a merger of two earlier publications, Hate Crime Data Collection Guidelines and the Training Guide for Hate Crime Data Collection—is a collaborative effort of the FBI, law enforcement agencies, and various civil and human rights organizations. For more than two decades, thousands of city, county, college and university, state, tribal, and federal law enforcement agencies have voluntarily submitted data to the UCR Hate Crime Statistics Program on crimes motivated by biases against particular races, religions, sexual orientations, ethnicities, and physical and mental disabilities. This partnership between law enforcement and the FBI is increasingly important, especially with the expansion of the collection to include crimes motivated by gender and gender identity biases as required by the Act.
