Head of local policing Supt Chris Hillery visited a Sikh Temple in Northampton.
He was accompanied by the force’s two community engagement officers, PC Nick Stephens and DC Rachel Packman.
A police spokeswoman said the visit was a proactive approach in response to recent concerns about hate crime.
After meeting children at the community centre Superintendent Hillery then addressed members in the temple and reassured them that no rise in reported hate crime had occurred in the county although acknowledging that reports had increased in other parts of the UK.
