U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum Presents: To Protect and Serve? Dilemmas in Law Enforcement

Community Event

Law enforcement personnel are called upon to protect and defend democratic values while helping to keep the peace in communities around the world. As the Nazi Party implemented its campaign of hate and violence against Jews, police and military helped enforce laws that violated the ideals of service and protection. The Museum invites law enforcement personnel to participate in programming to examine the roles played by their historical counterparts in Nazi Germany—including those who cooperated and those who did not. Join us for a discussion with a law enforcement leader to learn how Holocaust history is helping new recruits and veteran officers better understand their own professional and individual responsibilities. Speakers Jane Castor, Former Chief, Tampa Police Department Sarah Reza, Program Coordinator, Law, Justice and Society Initiatives, US Holocaust Memorial Museum This program is free and open to the public, but reservations are required at ushmm.org/events/protect-davie.
