Copping It Sweet

July 7, 2010

Last week rabbis and other jewish community dignitaries met key members of the Victorian Police force.

This meeting of minds took place at the St Kilda town hall. Leaders present included Commander Ashley Dickinson and Chief Commissioner Simon Overland, while enforcers of Jewish law included Rabbis Yaakov Glasman, Meir Shlomo Kluwgant and James Kennard. The community has long prided itself on its relationship with the local authority.

As reported by the AJN, Jewish constable Anthony Tannenbaum spoke of the rigorous application process for joining the force. “I remember the sergeant doing my interview asked me why there weren’t more Jewish police applicants. I replied with as honest an answer as I could … Jewish mothers.”

It will be interesting to see if the impending election will coerce more plans out of the incumbent government to add more policing to our streets – and if this imbalance in the jewish policing community will be addressed.
