Recognizing and Responding to Hate Crimes

Register today. Deadline is Sept. 5, 2006.

Online Hate Crime Training

In 2001 an online course on how to recognize and respond to hate crimes was created through a partnership between the Southern Poverty Law Center, the Federal Law Enforcement Training Center (FLETC), and an area university.

Today, the quarterly course continues through a relationship with California State University, San Bernardino and its Center for the Study of Hate and Extremism.

Based on the FLETC curriculum, law enforcement officers earn academic and continuing education credit, along with FLETC training certificates. The Center provides partial scholarships to a limited number of state and local law enforcement personnel who enroll in the course.

The introductory unit of the course emphasizes recognition of and response to hate crimes, and familiarizes officers with origins, terminology, types of offenders, hate groups, law, and the role of police.

An advanced course addresses first responder and supervisory roles, investigation and intelligence, victim needs, juveniles, international concerns, legal issues, and community response.

The course is supported by an international advisory board of U.S. and Canadian law enforcement officers and experts in the field. Board members also are featured on CD-based panel discussions and mini-lectures accompanying the course, and they are available for discussion board interaction during the sessions.

Extremist Training

The Intelligence Project regularly conducts in-person trainings for local, state and federal law enforcement officers by request. We focus on the history, background, leaders and activities of far-right extremists in the U.S.

Training sessions last from two to four hours and are tailored to fit the requesting agency's requirements. Contact us to request in-person training or to learn more about our program.

Hate Crime Training

Intelligence Project staff have been involved in the Federal Law Enforcement Training Center's hate and bias crime "train-the-trainer" program since its inception in 1992. FLETC trains personnel for more than 75 federal law enforcement agencies and provides services for local, state and international agencies.

FLETC invited Intelligence Project personnel to help develop and write courses for a training program to improve the recognition, reporting and investigating of hate crimes. A member of the Intelligence Project staff taught one of the program's first pilot classes in New Jersey in 1994 and continues to instruct FLETC classes today.

Graduates of the three-day course receive certificates of training from FLETC. Interested officers can contact FLETC.
