LVMPD is working with the Jewish community to prevent anti-Semitic attacks. Even something that doesn’t seem significant might be a key piece in a larger puzzle, law enforcement officials advised in a security seminar.
With a recent spike in acts of anti-Semitism in Las Vegas and nationwide, law enforcement officials today urged leaders of the Jewish community to report any suspicious activity.
Even something that doesn’t seem significant might be a key piece in a larger puzzle, said law enforcement officials who met with more than 20 community leaders in Las Vegas today for a security seminar.
The meeting, organized by U.S. Rep. Dina Titus, D-Las Vegas, featured presentations on safety and awareness by officers from the Metro Police counterterrorism and hazardous materials units and a Las Vegas FBI special agent.
“We wanted to bring our community together and bring some leaders to the table to have a real conversation on security and the importance of staying vigilant,” said Jolie Brislin, Nevada regional director of the Anti-Defamation League.
“Metro, the FBI and Homeland Security have been really wonderful working with the community to make sure we have all of the most up-to-date information,” Brislin said. “Today, they can give some of the leaders of the Jewish community first-hand information so they can pass it on to people at their organizations.”
