FBI Approves Revised Hate Crime Data Collection Manual

On Feb. 27, the FBI approved a revised version of its Hate Crime Data Collection Guidelines And Training Manual.  The new version adds definitions and scenarios for categories of hate crimes on which data is to be collected for the first time beginning this year-- anti-Sikh, anti-Hindu and anti-Arab hate crimes.
