What should I report?

You should report any and all suspected or confirmed bias incidents to our police department. In other words, if you are a victim of, or a witness to, any offense which occurs against a person based on that person's race, color, religion, gender, or other protected status, then you should report that incident. To aid with investigations try to note important information including license plate numbers, identifying physical features such as tattoos, etc.
