MK Lavie: Police needs to be restructured after sexual harassment scandals

The Knesset Committee for the Advancement of the Status of Women and Gender Equality will hold a meeting on Wednesday, despite the election recess, to discuss the spate of sexual harassment incidents in the police.
"Those who are responsible for enforcing the law are serial law-breakers," Committee chairwoman Aliza Lavie (Yesh Atid) said Sunday. "Sexual harassment by senior police officials requires a reorganization of the organization that degenerated."
The Yesh Atid MK said sexual harassment by men with authority to women are subordinate to them is a result of an non-egalitarian power structure that should not exist.
According to Lavie, "bandages cannot be used to fix what needs surgery," and firing and suspending police officers is not enough to solve the problem.
