Referral to Law Enforcement

Whenever a school employee has reason to believe that a potential hate crime has been, or is about to be committed, s/he should notify the school civil rights designee and, especially in an emergency, the local police. The civil rights designee has chief responsibility for notifying the police of potential hate crimes in non-emergency situations; the referral is mandatory whenever a probable hate crime is at issue.
