Like many high harm crime types, hate crime incidents are recorded on police systems even when they don’t meet the threshold to be categorised as criminal offences. This serves two important purposes; it helps to build an intelligence picture for police and can ensure that victims can be directed to support services if required.
The systems on which such incidents would be recorded are CRIS/CRIMINT/IIP and PND. Basic and Standard DBS checks would not include information pertaining to non-crime hate reports, but the information may be considered during an Enhanced DBS check. In order to appear on an applicant’s certificate, the information would need to satisfy the national relevancy and proportionality criteria. Incidents would not show up on CTC, SC or DV checks.
