Close to 100 township workers and emergency responders attended a symposium hosted by the West Windsor Police Department focused on learning about Islam and Muslim culture, police said.
The four-day event took place last month at the Princeton Junction Fire Department and featured daily speakers from the Institute of Islamic Studies in East Windsor, covering aspects of the Islamic religion, cultural practices and sensitivities of the Muslim community.
"I would say I made new friends," said Sgt. Mark Lee, who helped organize the event. "We're building bridges of understanding."
