Poll: If you were subject to or witness to a racist incident would you report it?

In 2009, 1038 racist incidents were recorded by the PSNI, compared to 128 by Gardaí.

THE IMMIGRANT COUNCIL of Ireland (ICI) has today called for a review of how racist incidents are recorded by An Garda Síochána.

Report

A study by the group finds that there is a 700 per cent gap between the amount of racist incidents reported to police in Northern Ireland compared to the Republic, stating that in 2009, 1038 incidents were recorded by the PSNI, compared to 128 by Gardaí.

The ICI are calling for the introduction of an independent system of reporting incidents of racism.

In today’s poll, we want to know: If you were subject to or witness to a racist incident would you report it to police?
