Arson Investigators Receive ADL Hate Crimes Training

  • August 19, 2013

Nearly 50 arson investigators, firefighters, and law enforcement officers participated in a hate crimes training session presented by ADL in San Antonio. 

The session, which covered hate crime laws, hate crime victims, reporting hate crimes and how to recognize the signs, symbols and tattoos of people who act on their hate, lasted four hours and provided continuing education credit for the participants. 

There was high interest in the training, which had to be moved to a larger classroom than the one in which it was originally scheduled, due to an overflow crowd. 

Participants said they found the training informative, useful, and worthwhile.
