Crime Prevention Tip:

Respecting Diversity

Hate or bias motivated crimes are not a new problem. It has been around throughout history. To eliminate this problem, here are a few things that you can do:

• Bring into your home books, tapes, toys, and other items that reflect diverse cultures.

• Show that you value diversity through your friendships and business relationships.

• Enforce an attitude that someone’s differences are never an acceptable reason for teasing or rejecting.

• Provide opportunities for you and your family to interact with others who are racially, culturally, physically, or mentally different.

• Listen to your family’s questions about others and answer them.

• Encourage your children to get involved in all sorts of activities, whether or not they are traditionally male or female.

• Make it clear to your children that when they make a racial, ethnic, or religious slur that these comments are not acceptable.
