Columbus Police Tell Foundation Audience of their “Weight of Duty”
During the Holocaust, police played a key role in the concentration, deportation, and murder of Jews and other so-called State enemies. Columbus Police Chief Kim Jacobs and members of the Columbus Police Division spoke at the Foundation last night about special training at the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum that 56 Columbus police officers received with the Foundation’s assistance on “Law Enforcement and Society: Lessons of the Holocaust.” They said that they all came back home with deeper insight and sensitivity about their professional and personal responsibilities and the moral duties of police in American society today. The program was partially funded with a Foundation grant. See attached The Columbus Dispatch link.
