For the police, tackling anti-Semitism is also a priority. They say working with community groups is helpful.

 

Anti-Semitic abuse on social media sites has contributed to a 5% increase in recorded incidents. Tal Ofer, a member of the European Jewish Parliament, spoke to JN1 about anti-Semitic abuse he has experienced.

 

Indeed, the Community Security Trust continues to offer support to victims of anti-Semitic abuse, encouraging them to report incidents to the police and The Trust.

 

With the help of the new data sharing system both the police and the CST are hopeful that recording anti-Semitic incidents can now be done with greater accuracy.
