From the manual: The Hate Crimes Prevention Act & Model Reporting Procedures
The passage of the Matthew Shepard and James Byrd, Jr. Hate Crimes Prevention Act (the Act) in 2009 expanded the bias motivation definitions for hate crimes. The FBI’s Uniform Crime Reporting (UCR) Program, which collects and publishes information about crimes motivated by bias, has modified its data collection accordingly by including new and revised definitions, along with corresponding examples.
In addition to providing suggested model reporting procedures and training aids for capturing the new bias motivations, the manual is written to raise law enforcement officers’ awareness of the hate crime problem.
