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.

OPHC coordinates the City’s efforts through an interagency committee consisting of over 20 city agencies and all five District Attorney Hate Crime Units, as well as networks of community-based providers and organizations. It works with partners to develop approaches to preventing hate violence, resources to promote reporting of incidents, and responses for when hate crimes occur.

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.
