A report from the department's hate crimes task force is due next year, but Mr. Sessions noted noted other steps being taken in the meantime - highlighting the DOJ's decision to appoint a prosecutor from the civil rights division to assist prosecution of a man accused of killing a transgender teenager.

There were 40 hate crimes reported in the state past year, the highest number of bias-related incidents since 2010.

Nationally, hate crimes rose for the second straight year, according to the Federal Bureau of Investigation numbers.

In 2015, 32 crimes were motivated by race, five by religion, and seven by sexual orientation.

However, a report issued last month by the Maryland State Police showed a 40 percent increase in hate "incidents" in the state in 2016.

As part of the 2016 report, participants in UCR's Hate Crime Statistics Program included 15,254 law enforcement agencies.

Hate crimes in Maryland, however, have decreased 14 percent, according to the data.

"No person should have to fear being violently attacked because of who they are, what they believe or how they worship", he said.

Incidents targeting Jews increased from 664 incidents in 2015 to 684 incidents in 2016.

"There's a risky disconnect between the rising problem of hate crimes and the lack of credible data being reported", said Anti-Defamation League CEO Jonathan A. Greenblatt, who called for an "all-hands-on-deck approach" to address underreporting.

"Hate crimes demand priority attention due to their special impact". Anti-Jewish hate crimes, anti-Islamic hate crimes, and anti-Catholic hate crimes all saw various increases in 2016.

About half the 1,273 incidents involving religion were against Jews while Muslims were targeted in 307 religion-based crimes.

Another 21.0 percent were for religion, and 17.7 percent sexual orientation.
