Croatia regularly reports hate crime data to ODIHR. Since 2006, Croatia has been implementing ODIHR's Law Enforcement Outreach Programme (LEOP) followed by the updated Training Against Hate Crime for Law Enforcement (TAHCLE) programme. In 2021, the government adopted an inter-agency "Protocol on Monitoring Hate Crimes", establishing state authorities' responsibilities in addressing hate crime and re-creating a dedicated Working Group. In 2021, the Working Group participated in ODIHR's diagnostic workshop to assess national structures and services for hate crime victim support, resulting in a set of ODIHR recommendations to the relevant state authorities. Data on hate crime are regularly published by the Office for Human Rights and the Rights of National Minorities of the Government.
