The training will be hosted by the Worcester State College campus police department at the Kaylan Ghosh Science and Technology Building, 486 Chandler Street, Worcester, Massachusetts from 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.
"At the request of New England campus police chiefs, CRS stepped in to help the chiefs receive information on best practices to prevent and to address Post-September 11 hate incidents and racial tensions on their campuses," said CRS Director Sharee M. Freeman.
