THE public will be able to put questions about the law around homophobic hate crimes directly to police and experts in a web chat.
Sussex Police will be putting on events throughout February, which is Lesbian Gay Bisexual Trans (LGBT) History Month.
The live chat will give members of the public a chance to put questions to a panel giving advice and support on LGBT issues.
Chief Superintendent Wayne Jones said: ‘Hate crime can have a devastating effect on victims and causes fear among communities and residents.
‘We urge anyone who feels they have been a victim of hate crime or targeted because of their sexual orientation or gender identity to report it to us immediately.’
To take part in the web chat log on to Sussex Police website on between 7.30pm and 9pm at bit.ly/1xgVKJL.
