CST volunteers show their commitment to protecting our community after London and Manchester attacks

13 Jun 2017 by CST

Following the tragic Manchester and London attacks, which left 30 people dead, two hundred CST security volunteers participated in vigorous, specially designed security training scenarios. CST’s staff and volunteers are fully committed to the task at hand, confronting the threats facing both the Jewish community and our wider British society.

 The two training sessions focused on dealing with knife attacks, suicide bombers, multiple attackers and car rammings. Sadly, the Jewish community has all too often been a target for terrorists in Europe, and CST does its utmost to ensure that security and training is delivered to the highest possible standard.

CST’s National Head of Training responded to the tremendous outpouring of support and commitment of the volunteers:

“In all my years of training, these sessions were some of the best training sessions I have ever been at, in particular, the level of commitment from the volunteers and the atmosphere in the room. The feedback has been exceptional.”

“Since 2003, CST has been a stalwart supporter of ODIHR in its efforts to effectively monitor antisemitic hate crime in the OSCE Region. With its rigorous methodology and innovative partnerships with the British police, it is viewed by many as representing the gold standard for NGO responses to all forms of hate crime. I wish CST all success in its exciting new phase of work.”
