Lessons from a Hate Crime Detective

Lessons from a Hate Crime Detective is a seven-minute roll call or training film featuring Detective Ellen Vest, a 30-year veteran of the San Diego County (California) Sheriff 's Department. Before her retirement in 2013, Vest developed a training program to help fellow officers and detectives recognize the signs and symbols of hate-based groups, trained officers to document evidence and their suspicions in reports, and worked with prosecutors to identify gang members and investigate hate crimes. In this short film, she distills the most important ideas about hate crimes down to five lessons.
