The New Jersey Office of the Attorney General, New Jersey Division of Criminal Justice, New Jersey Division on Civil Rights, NJ Bias Crime Officers Association and Wayne YMCA will present a Bias Incident/Bias Crime Virtual Awareness session as it relates to all communities. This training covers how to Recognize, Respond to and Report a Bias Incident or Bias Crime. The program will focus on the steps and procedures that take place once a bias incident is reported until completion of the investigation. It will also examine the impact on bias incidents as a result of the COVID-19 situation and the social unrest since the tragic death of George Floyd. The session will provide the audience with a greater understanding of the differences between a bias crime and a bias incident. Most importantly, it will cover how to report a bias incident and resources that are available to the community. Participants will be allowed to ask questions at the conclusion of the session.
