Illinois Holocaust Museum’s Brill Law Enforcement Action in Democracy (LEAD) Training works with law enforcement officials providing them with the training and tools necessary for understanding abuses of authority, responding to hate crimes and bias, and balancing the rights of individuals with societal protection. LEAD is a proven program that impacts how law enforcement approaches their jobs with empathy, as well as their understanding of the importance of moral and ethical standards in decision making.

LEAD is approved by the Illinois Law Enforcement Training and Standards Board, and exceeds standards including: Police Ethics, Police Citizen Relations, and Communication in the Police Environment, Crisis Intervention/Disturbance Calls, and Dealing with Variant Behavior. LEAD also assists police departments in meeting and supporting the Shared Principles of Policing issued by the NAACP in 2018.

Each LEAD Training includes:

  • Multimedia presentations using video, photography, and historical documents
  • Interactive discussion using the lens of the Holocaust and the role of policing in Nazi Europe to stimulate reflective discussion on the challenges of balancing the rights of people with the protection of society
  • Modules that explore issues of racism, bias and violence through exploration of contemporary case studies that help participants reflect on their personal and professional responsibilities, as well as the dangers of silence and indifference.
  • Tour of the Museum’s Karkomi Holocaust Exhibition (on-site or virtual available)
  • Unforgettable encounter with living history through the testimony of a Holocaust eyewitness (Based on availability)
