Dyfed Powys Police marks Holocaust Memorial Day
On the 27th January 2016, Dyfed-Powys Police will mark Holocaust Memorial Day (HMD). The theme for this year’s HMD is “Don’t stand by.”
As a mark of respect, Dyfed-Powys Police will fly the flag at half-mast on the 27th January to remember those victims of the Holocaust. Information with regards to the day has also been circulated to all staff and officers and literature has been dispatched to all stations.
Anti-Semitism, racism and hate crime have not gone away. And every one of us can make a difference in our own communities. We can all challenge prejudice and discrimination if we hear and see it in our schools, workplaces or in the general public.
Deputy Chief Constable Liane James said
“It is important that we remember such tragic events and honour the survivors.
“Hate crimes can be frightening and can leave victims feeling vulnerable and insecure.
“We all need to take the responsibility and challenge hate crime, ensuring that we do not stand by when we see prejudice and discrimination being committed.”
If you, or anyone you know, has experienced a hate crime or incident we would like you to tell us:
Call into your local police station
Speak to a Police Officer or PCSO on the street
Phone the Police on 101 to tell them about something that has happened before
Call 999 if you or someone else is in immediate danger
