"The Bias Crime Assessment Tool (BCAT) and Guidelines aim to improve reporting of hate incidents and crimes. Informed by research, this tool is intended to be used in a wide range of settings by schools, law enforcement, victim assistance specialists, community and civil rights advocates, health care providers or social service agency staff who may be responsible for identifying and responding to victims of hate. The BCAT has two parts: Part 1 is short and meant for quick assessments; Part 2 is more in-depth."
