President Shimon Peres was among those who eulogized Haifa Police Chief Ahuva
Tomer on Monday, calling her "the best of the best" and "a symbol of courage".
She was an example to all, he declared.
She never had to raise her voice
to the 550 police under her command, Peres continued. She was loved and admired,
and she devoted her life to Israel.
Aside from being a good mother, she
was always a willing listener to others - not only to the men and women under
her command, but also to prisoners.
She paved her own path to success,
and worked tirelessly to eradicate crime.
