Teaching Police to Deal with Hate Crimes

Police from Chicago and some suburbs will gather, along with local FBI agents and U.S. Border officials at the Illinois Holocaust Museum today. During a two-day program, public safety officials will learn the history of the Holocaust and examine the role of police in Nazi Europe. The goal is to train law enforcement officials to respond to hate crimes and discuss the challenges of protecting society while securing people's rights. Richard Hirschhaut is the Executive Director of the Illinois Holocaust Museum and Education Center and he explains this program.
