“With the world still shellshocked
over this week’s horrific attacks in Norway, law enforcement agencies are
interested in benefiting from Israel’s unfortunate experience in this arena,” MK
ISC said in a press statement on Thursday.
“Program participants will be
given an exclusive look at Israel’s security apparatus at major transit hubs,
critical infrastructure installations, government buildings and more, as well as
learning about Israeli doctrine that has proven so effective and that can be
employed elsewhere,” the statement added.
“There is no substitute for
seeing the effects of terror with your own eyes,” said MK ISC founder Kahlberg,
a former Israel Police detective, who was involved in organizing responses to a
number of terrorist attacks in Netanya.
“We bring our counterparts from
overseas here to show them how we manage to secure sensitive infrastructure and
personnel and prevent the vast majority of terror attacks,” Kahlberg said.
