ADL, In Partnership With The Chicago Police Department, Launches First-Of-Its-Kind Online Hate Crimes Training for Police Officers

The Anti-Defamation League (ADL) in partnership with the Chicago Police Department today announced the launch of an online hate crimes training curriculum for police officers, which is the first of its kind in the country. The online hate crimes training course will be mandatory for all 12,000 of the city’s police officers. The curriculum examines the unique nature and impact of hate crimes, explores the scope of the Illinois hate crime statute, provides information regarding hate crimes statistics, instructs officers about Chicago Police Department procedures for hate crimes investigations, and provides tips on how to work effectively with victims. The new hate crimes training module will be incorporated into recruit training and made available remotely for all officers. “Hate crimes affect not only the individual, but the entire affected community”, said Lonnie Nasatir, ADL Chicago Regional Director. “Targeting an individual based upon his or her religion, race, color, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, national origin, or physical or mental disability must not be tolerated. This curriculum will help law enforcement to recognize hate crime indicators and respond effectively to alleged hate crimes.” This collaboration between ADL and CPD reflects CPD’s commitment to combat hate crimes. This online hate crimes training module is the first of its kind in the country, and will serve as a model for other law enforcement agencies.
