The Union of Italian Jewish Communities (UCEI), together with the Osservatorio per la Sicurezza Contro gli Atti Discriminatori della Direzione Centrale della Polizia Criminale (“Observatory for the Security against Discriminatory Acts by the Central Direction of the Criminal Police”) released a brief guide on Italian Judaism for the police last week.

“The goal of this publication is to help police officers to carry out their tasks better, offering them a tool to get to know the specific characteristics of Italian Judaism in order to interact better with people of the Jewish faith,” said prefect Nicolò Marcello D’Angelo, president of the Osservatorio, expressing his pride in the project during the press conference held at UCEI Centro Bibliografico in Rome.

UCEI president Noemi Di Segni highlighted the importance of the close relationship with the police.

“This is also an occasion to thank all those who are responsible for guarding the security of our institutions, communities and individuals, on behalf of all Italian Jews,” she concluded.
