Watch the video and make a stand against hate crime by downloading the Self Evident crime reporting app.

The app is an existing piece of technology. However, financial investment from the Sussex Police & Crime Commissioner (PCC) has enabled more custom-built software to be added to help victims of hate crime access help and advice.
