The City of New York launched the Office for the Prevention of Hate Crimes (OPHC) in September 2019.

As part of the Mayor's Office of Criminal Justice, the OPHC takes a holistic approach to preventing hate crimes, developing and coordinating community-driven prevention strategies to address biases fueling such crimes, and fostering healing for victims and their communities.

The office coordinates city efforts to prevent and respond to hate crimes through an interagency committee of 11 city agencies and the five District Attorneys' offices.

To report a hate crime or any emergency, call 911.

Non-emergencies should be reported to the local precinct. Find your nearest precinct.

For general questions, please contact the OPHC team.
