Caulfield Police partnered with the Jewish community to host a Victoria Police and Jewish Community Day last Sunday, as part of Cultural Diversity week.

Local Area Commander, Inspector Dr Cath Wilkins, and officers in charge of Caulfield Police Station, Ron Klajnblat and Helena Strickland, were also in attendance.

Senior Sergeant Strickland said, “The event was aimed at continuing to build trust, confidence and positive relationships between the local Jewish community and local police.

“It proved to be a successful fun family day. Victoria Police is proud to serve and work collaboratively with the Jewish community.”

At the event, children admired the horses of the mounted police and sat in police cars and ambulances, while parents toured the mobile police facility.
