Law Enforcement Officer Training Program

The Law Enforcement Officer Training Program is a collaborative program involving Chhange, the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum, and the Office of the Monmouth County Prosecutor. This initiative sends 50 local law enforcement officers and administrators to the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum in Washington, DC, for a two-day intensive training session on the Holocaust, genocide and human rights.

Chhange staff then accompany the group to Washington where they co-teach the program with the Museum staff.

The training uses the resources of the Museum, especially the permanent exhibit, as a means of sensitizing the officers to their responsibilities in our diverse democratic society. To date, nearly 400 members of the law enforcement community have been trained in this program. This powerful experience makes the participants reflect deeply on their work and their role in society.

Chhange educates, inspires, and empowers individuals to stand up to injustice.
