Police Commissioner Insp.-Gen. Yohanan Danino and senior officers flew to Europe Sunday morning for a week-long visit aimed at tightening cooperation with the police forces of Germany and the Netherlands.

Danino was joined by the head of the Israel Police’s Foreign Relations Department, Lt.-Cmdr. Diane Eldad-Sheetrit, and a delegation of officers.

He is scheduled to meet senior German police and interior ministry officials, and examine cooperation between the two forces on issues such as crime-fighting and counterterrorism.

Danino will also discuss plans by Germany’s Federal Criminal Police Office to purchase, on behalf of the European Union, an automated fingerprint ID system (AFIS) for the Palestinian Authority police.

“He will tell the European officials how the Israel Police has used AFIS effectively, and this information will be used to instruct PA police on using the system,” police spokesman Micky Rosenfeld said.

The police chief will visit the Platform 17 Holocaust memorial in Berlin and the Wannsee Villa, where he will lay a wreath of flowers and read out a prayer.

The commissioner will then fly to the Netherlands, where he will meet with Interpol Secretary-General Ronald Noble and senior Dutch police officials.


Growing Dutch-Israeli law enforcement cooperation over international money laundering, narcotics, and counterterrorism will be discussed during the meetings.
