Olmert: Law enforcement bodies need to be shaken up
By JPOST.COM STAFF
Law enforcement bodies need to be shaken up in light of rising violence caused by organized crime, Prime Minister Ehud Olmert said Tuesday, following Monday's assassination of mob boss Ya'acov Alperon.
"There is an inconsistency between the level of crime and the manner in which it is being handled," he said.
Olmert added that he intended to meet with Public Security Minister Avi Dichter and Police Insp.-Gen. David Cohen in the coming days to hear of their proposed plans to fight organized crime.
