The Virginia Beach Police Department continued their commitment to “Never Again” with their Recruit Class 63 during a recent trip to the Virginia Holocaust Museum.

Organized by the Virginia Beach Law Enforcement Training Academy, Sergeant Bryan S. Marshall says that the experience “was extremely informative and many of the recruits, while aware, were not completely educated on the intricate atrocities of the past. The experience gave them the enhanced knowledge on the downfall of absolute power that goes unchecked, in hopes that this or anything similar never happens again.”

For the past five years, the Community Relations Council and the Holocaust Commission of the United Jewish Federation of Tidewater have supported the Virginia Beach Police Department in their Holocaust education training by providing lunch for the attendees while at the museum.
