Since 2005, the Dallas Holocaust Museum/Center for Education and Tolerance has provided ethics and diversity training for law enforcement officers who are being trained for supervisory positions in their respective departments. From sergeants to chiefs, these officers have come from all over the United States, and even Canada.
The program consists of docent-led tours of the museum’s permanent exhibit, historical background and discussion of the role of German police battalions during the Holocaust by museum staff, and the testimony of a Holocaust Survivor (by request).
The theme of the Law Enforcement Program centers around decision making, choices based on personal values and ethics.
