The Palmyra Police Department, along with Medford and Lumberton, has joined the Anti-Defamation League to provide Anti-Bias Training to all officers to increase officer awareness of bias and better service residents and visitors.
The unique role of police officers in any community makes cross-cultural understanding imperative. In an effort to better communicate with all segments of the population and help community members feel their concerns are understood. The Anti-Defamation League has created a specialized anti-bias training program. These training workshops have been presented to the FBI, the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department, the NY State Police and many other local law enforcement agencies.
Training workshops for all three departments are being held at the Lumberton Township Municipal Building, 35 Municipal Drive, Lumberton NJ 08048. Training is being conducted on Thursday, Jan. 12 and Thursday, Jan. 19 from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.
