Slovakia regularly reports hate crime data to ODIHR. Slovakia has implemented ODIHR's Training Against Hate Crime for Law Enforcement (TAHCLE) programme since 2017 and the Prosecutors and Hate Crime Training (PAHCT) programme since 2018. In 2018, the Ministry of Interior co-organized with ODIHR and the EU Agency for Fundamental Rights a workshop on understanding and improving hate crime recording and data collection, based on ODIHR's Information Against Hate Crimes Toolkit (INFAHCT). The workshop resulted in a set of recommendations to relevant state authorities. There is a high degree of hate crime specialization in both police and prosecutor structures.

Hate crime recorded by police
ODIHR observes that the law enforcement agencies of the Slovak Republic have not recorded the bias motivations of hate crimes.
In its fifth report, the European Commission against Racism and Intolerance (ECRI) observed the amendments to the Slovak Criminal Code’s aggravating circumstances provision and, in that context, reiterated the need for detailed statistical data on racist, homophobic and transphobic crimes.
The United Nations Committee on the Elimination of Racial Discrimination (CERD) recommended that Slovakia take action to ensure the effective investigation and prosecution of hate crimes, and that the state provide the Committee with comprehensive hate crime statistics.
