FBI Issues New Hate Crime Reporting Guidelines and Training Manual

ADL's Civil Rights Blog reports on the FBI's release last month of a new guide on  reporting of hate crimes titled Hate Crime Data Collection Guidelines and Training Manual. According to the Introduction in the Manual, it
is intended to assist law enforcement agencies in reporting incidents of hate crime to the FBI UCR Program.  It addresses policy, the types of bias crime to be reported, how to identify a hate crime, and guidelines for reporting hate crime.
