CST works closely with Police at local, regional and national levels to help protect Jewish communities. This includes joint patrols in Jewish areas, training classes and exercises, exchange of antisemitic incident data and numerous advisory roles.
CST is proud to assist the work of the Police in tackling hate crime and preventing terrorism; and we are grateful for the support and encouragement we have received from Police officers of all ranks in our work.
You can report an antisemitic hate crime to the Police via the True Vision website or contact your local Police force. You can also report antisemitic hate crime through Self Evident, an application produced by Witness Confident.
Alternatively, you can report non-emergencies to the Police by calling 101. In an emergency, always dial 999.
Sir Bernard Hogan-Howe QPM, former Commissioner of the Metropolitan Police:
“I’ve now worked with CST on and off for about 11 or 12 years directly, and in that time I’ve seen it develop into a really professional organisation – well-funded, well-organised, delivers on its promises, very challenging, there’s no messing about...
“But it has my support and it has the Police service of the United Kingdom’s support – great partner, it delivers what it says on the tin and it does its best to keep safe and share intelligence and allow us to move forward together.”
Sir Peter Fahy QPM, former Chief Constable of Greater Manchester Police:
“I am proud to continue working with CST, a truly professional organisation which has made a real difference in protecting its community and working productively with local Police.”
CST has produced a Police Officer’s guide to Judaism, in response to requests from many serving Police officers who would like to know more about the Jewish religion, so as they can better understand and assist their local Jewish communities. It explains traditions and religious customs, highlighting practical issues including the Sabbath, dietary laws and matters of death and burial. This highly successful booklet is now in its 4th edition and has also been produced in Scotland as the Firefighter’s Guide to Judaism.
