On Friday, City Councilmembers approved a report from the information, technology and general services committee that will improve access for hate crime reporting through technological solutions and reporting data captured by MyLA 3-1-1.

The report directs City departments to identify funding and resources to build capacity for 311 staff to include delivery of trauma informed training for 311 staff handling hate reporting calls. It also instructs departments like the Civil + Human Rights and Equity Department to support hate reporting improvements, address needs of hate crimes victims, improve the efficacy of bystander interventions, and support research partnerships to study the feasibility of a reporting application.
