National Institutes Against Hate Crimes and Terrorism

Explore new paradigms for understanding hate crimes and terrorism

The National Institute Against Hate Crimes and Terrorism enhances criminal justice professionals' capacity to proactively prevent the spread of hate crimes in their communities and to vigilantly identify and address potential terrorist threats. Jurisdictional teams formulate strategic approaches to combat hate crimes collaboratively based on a fresh understanding of the unique elements that differentiate them from other criminal acts.

Criminal justice professionals from the same jurisdiction are invited to form teams to learn how to combat terrorism and hate crimes collaboratively and more effectively. Teams are comprised of judges, attorneys (U.S., District, City and Public Defenders), probation and police officers, school officials, and human relation commissioners throughout the United States.

How do I attend?
Begin by forming a 5-7 member team consisting of one judge or judiciary representative, one prosecuting attorney, one public defender, one probation official, two law enforcement officers, one school official or education representative OR one victim/witness advocate or human relations commissioner. Submit one application packet containing both individual and team responses.
