Police Training


Lessons in Humanity

Members from police services across Ontario have attended FSWC’s law enforcement training programs to build their understanding of the increasingly complex and diverse environments in which they are working.  FSWC’s targeted programming works to break down the multi-layered and globalized world in which we live.  Workshops and speaker series aim to develop essential links between current events and the daily work of law enforcement officials on the ground in Canada.  The role of law enforcement in conflict, specifically the Holocaust, from a historical perspective is examined, followed by an analysis and discussion of prevailing modern-day issues such as antisemitism, the Middle East conflict, terror and Jewish targets, hate crimes and laws, campus and BDS/hate advocacy.

Antisemitism: Then and Now

Antisemitism did not begin with the Holocaust, nor did it die with the defeat of Nazism in 1945. Antisemitism has been called one of the world’s oldest forms of hatred, dating back more than 2,000 years in the archeological record to Greek and Roman sources. Tragically, this type of hate continues to thrive today in the 21st century, with many of the same myths and tropes continuing to be perpetuated. This 1 ½ hour program will look at patterns of antisemitism evidenced from antiquity to present day, discussing how to identify this form of hate and suggest ways in which to address it in our contemporary world today.

The purpose of the program is to educate and build awareness about the topic of antisemitism from a historical to contemporary context. Understanding historical forms of antisemitism places current incidents within a broader spectrum of understanding of the seriousness and longevity of this form of hatred and intolerance. It also informs conversations about how naming and calling out antisemitism alongside building allyship can work towards countering this hate. All of this work is about valuing diversity and inclusion and using one’s power and privilege to contribute to diversity and inclusion.
