Do you know where to report hate crimes?

I was surfing the net looking for GLBT connections to Saipan and stumbled on a little finding. The U.S. Department of Justice offers a internet page for "Office of Victims of Crime" and their "Resources for Responding to Hate Crimes". And there you have it, when you scroll down about 3/4's of the page:

"N. Mariana Islands
Attorney General of N. Mariana Islands
Office of the Attorney General
Commonwealth-of the Northern
Mariana Islands
Saipan, MP 96950
(670) 322-4311 "


I have not heard of any recent hate crimes, however there have been some in the past and it is always good to know where to report these crimes. We need to feel we can report hate crimes and feel like we will be taken serious.

Tell me if you think the AG's office will be able to process these crimes appropriately. Does anyone have a story they can share?
