Slovakia regularly reports police data and data on sentencing to ODIHR. Slovakia's criminal code includes substantive offences and a specific penalty enhancement clause affixed to a large number of base offences. While sentencing data only comprise hate crimes, police data also include hate speech offences. The Ministry of Interior, the Ministry of Justice and the Prosecutor's Office collect hate crime data. The data on hate crime are not made public.

In its fifth report on Slovakia, the European Commission against Racism and Intolerance (ECRI) noted the amendments to aggravating circumstances provisions in the criminal code and reiterated the need for detailed statistical data on racist and homophobic/transphobic hate crime.
In its report on Slovakia, the United Nations Working Group on the Universal Periodic Review (UPR) raised concerns about increased violence against the Roma community and condemned violent attacks against Roma committed by law-enforcement personnel. It recommended special training on human rights and tolerance for police officers, the investigation and prosecution of all perpetrators of hate crimes against Roma, and amendments to the criminal code to increase punishments for racially motivated crimes committed by police officers.
ODIHR observes that the law-enforcement agencies of the Slovak Republic have not recorded the bias motivations of hate crimes.
