Superintendent Paul Giannasi has been involved in the investigation of hate crime since the 1980s but has also overseen the development of national government and police policy for hate crime since 2007. In this chapter he talks about the huge impact the Stephen Lawrence Inquiry had on the development of hate crime policy and the importance of leadership to bring around cultural change. The chapter outlines how recent policy developments have been informed by the research and influence of academic colleagues. It highlights how the relationship in the 1980s was typically confrontational and distant but the development of a much closer working relationship between policy makers and academia has been beneficial for policy makers and academics alike.
