CPS North West Tweet with partners on the Beat

On Thursday 29th January Ian Rushton, Deputy Chief Crown Prosecutor, took part in a Twitter chat with colleagues from Greater Manchester Police (GMP) and the Ministry of Justice to answer questions about the investigation and prosecution of Hate Crime.  This was one of many activities undertaken by the Hate Crime Partnership as part of its 3rd Annual Hate Crime Awareness Week 2015.  The event provided the opportunity for CPS North West to share some key messages about hate crime with GMP's 200,000 Twitter followers.
