Hate Crime Data Collection Guidelines and Training Manual (Version 3.0)


This document is designed to assist law enforcement with collecting and submitting data on bias-motivated offenses to the FBI’s UCR Program. The manual is a collaborative effort of the FBI, law enforcement agencies, and various civil and human rights organizations. It also addresses policy, the types of bias crimes to be reported, how to identify a hate crime through training scenarios, and guidelines for reporting crimes motivated by prejudice based on race, gender and gender identity, religion, disability, sexual orientations, or ethnicity.
