Officers will be implementing reassurance patrols and visits to communities that could be impacted.
Chief Superintendent Catherine Clarke said: “I would like to stress that at North Yorkshire Police we are mindful that many people will be concerned about what is unfolding in Israel and Gaza and that this has the potential to increase fear and tension within our own communities.
"We take all reports of hate crime extremely seriously and we will do everything we can to investigate any incidents, identify suspect(s) and take robust and appropriate action.”
Anyone with any concerns, or who has been a victim of or witnessed any offences, should contact police on 101, or 999 in an emergency.
