Vegas Police Counter Terrorism Center Develops Educational Course On Sikhism

Las Vegas police say they've finished developing an online course to educate civilians and police officers about the Sikh religion.

The department's counter terrorism center has been working with the Sikh community in southern Nevada since January to create the overview of the faith, its practices and its cultural interactions.

Sikhism developed about 500 years ago in the Punjab region of northern India.

Sikhs in the U.S. have occasionally been the target of anti-Muslim sentiment because of their turbans and beards -- uncut hair is a sign of their faith. The religion is separate from Islam.

Police officials say they hope the online course fosters mutual respect and understanding between the department and the Sikh community.
