A delegation of senior American police commanders is in Israel this week as part of a counterterrorism training seminar sponsored by the Anti-Defamation League.

The officials hail from New York, New Jersey, Massachusetts and New Hampshire. A senior officer from the Italian National Police’s Counter Terrorism unit is also participating in the seminar.

Police spokesman Micky Rosenfeld said the program will provide them with an opportunity to “learn from each other and their Israeli counterparts.”

“The participants will travel across Israel to interact with commanders from the Israel Police and learn firsthand how Israel deals with terror,” Rosenfeld said.

The program will cover topics such as border security, securing religious sites and providing media response during crises.

Additionally, the officers will meet with first-responders and discuss the psychological effect of terrorist attacks. They will also tour Hadassah University Medical Center in Jerusalem.

“Since 9/11, the Anti- Defamation League and the Israel National Police have worked together to provide opportunities for the Israeli police officers to share their experience in counter-terrorism with their American counterparts,” Phyllis Gerably, director of the ADL Israel office, said. “ADL trainings are conducted regularly in the US and in Israel.

“The meetings are beneficial for both the US and Israeli officers who have a real chance to learn from one another.”
