Law Enforcement and Society
Law Enforcement and Society: Lessons of the Holocaust is a one day training run by the Anti-Defamation League (ADL), in partnership with the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum (USHMM), that highlights the core values of American law enforcement and their unique role as protectors of the Constitution and individual rights.
The program was initially created in 1998 at the request of Washington's former Police Chief Charles Ramsey. Since then, more than 60,000 law enforcement professionals have participated in the program. Participating agencies now include the Federal Bureau of Investigation, US Immigration and Customs Enforcement, and Drug Enforcement Administration, among others.
In 2007, ADL received the FBI Director's Community Leadership Award in recognition of LEAS, and the ongoing partnership between the ADL and FBI.
