Denmark regularly reports hate crime data to ODIHR. Denmark's hate crime laws are comprised of a general penalty-enhancement provision. Reported data include discrimination and hate speech offences, although these can be partially disaggregated. Hate crime data are collected by the Danish National Police and the Office of the Director of Public Prosecutions. Hate crime statistics are regularly published.
