Six hundred civilians working for the police were recruited as police officers in Modi’in on Wednesday.

The move was planned to level the working field of police employees, as part of a new policy that ensures that all workers in the force have the status of officers.

“To see one police officer sworn in is moving,” said Israel Police Insp.-Gen.
Yohanan Danino during the swearing-in ceremony. “To see 600 new officers... I must say something in the heart stirs.”

Danino said recruitment was the police’s version of social justice, aimed at receiving “the people who accompanied police for many years who have served with dedication, loyalty, and who served shoulder-to-shoulder with police. From today... we are all police.”

Under the new plan, all recruits will have the same employment rights, including civilians, who will continue their former jobs.

Civilians working for the police have asked to be recruited for years.

The Public Security Ministry backed the move .
