Combatting hate crimes

DENIA’S Policia Local force is to receive specific training in dealing with LGTBI-phobia and hate crimes.
Throughout the remaining three months of this year, the municipality’s 100 officers will be taking part in a pioneering 20-hour course that is a first for Alicante province, explained Denia’s Equality and Diversity councillor Javier Scotto, who also heads the town hall’s Public Safety department.
The course will provide officers with the resources for prevent and eradicating diversity-phobia while also assisting them in widening their knowledge and understanding of the development of gender identity, Scotto added.
The councillor also revealed that once the Denia officers have completed the course, the local force will be creating their own unit specialising in hate crimes.
