22 May 2015 by CST

Yesterday, CST held an awareness event for Police officers at London's Jewish Museum, as part of a training programme for Police that CST has been running in conjunction with the Museum since 2011.

Approximately 100 Police officers attended, representing all ranks up to Superintendent from the Metropolitan Police, City of London, Kent, Sussex, Norfolk, Essex, Surrey, Hertfordshire, South Wales, Thames Valley and Bedfordshire Police forces.

CST staff gave presentations about CST's work and the current situation regarding antisemitism and anti-Jewish terrorism in the UK. Rabbi Shlomo Odze of South Hampstead Synagogue gave a presentation about the history of the Jewish community in the UK, the different religious streams in the community and various topics including, Shabbat, festivals, Kashrut and offered practical policing tips throughout.

After the awareness session the officers had a chance to tour the museum.

CST's next awareness event for Police officers will be in December and is already over subscribed.
