In 2018, the Hate Crimes Enforcement and Prevention Initiative convened a law enforcement roundtable on challenges and successes in identifying, reporting, and tracking hate crimes. Although hate crimes and other bias-motivated incidents are generally investigated and prosecuted as state, local, or tribal matters, the Federal Government collaborates with state and local partners in the effort to eliminate these crimes from our communities. Through robust discussion and analysis, roundtable participants developed recommendations for enhancing hate crimes investigation and reporting that comprise a valuable roadmap for the journey ahead.
