The Community Security Trust (CST) works closely with police at local, regional and national levels to help protect Jewish communities. This includes joint patrols in Jewish areas, training classes and exercises, exchange of antisemitic incident data and numerous advisory roles.

CST has produced a Police Officer’s Guide to Judaism 2023, in response to requests from many serving police officers who would like to know more about the Jewish religion, so as they can better understand and assist their local Jewish communities. It explains traditions and religious customs, highlighting practical issues including the Sabbath, dietary laws and matters of death and burial. This highly successful booklet is now in its 4th edition and has also been produced in Scotland as the Firefighter’s Guide to Judaism.
