Security Updates

From the Federation Security Team

Please Be Aware

The federal hate crime trial is scheduled to begin on May 30th. A pool of nearly 70 jurors has been selected, and from there the government and defense will make final selections for the 12 jurors and six alternates. The final selection process will start in a few days, after the psychological evaluation of the defendant has been conducted by the government.

We are working in partnership with law enforcement and Secure Community Network (SCN) to proactively monitor any threat-related activity surrounding the trial and have a communication plan in place in the event threats are detected. We continue to see on-line chatter in support of the defendant. Remain vigilant and report any suspicious or concerning items to 911, then the Jewish Federation using our online contact form.
