A delegation of law-enforcement executives from California and Washington state has come to Israel to receive training in counter-terrorism methods from Israeli experts.

The week-long Anti-Defamation League program from October 6-13 is in its fifth year. As part of the program, members of the delegation, most of them employed in sheriffs’ offices, meet with security experts, intelligence analysts and commanders in the Israel National Police and Israel Defense Forces.

“As a people living under constant threat of attack, the Israelis are leading experts in security enforcement and response strategies,” said Tammy Gillies, the Anti-Defamation League’s regional director in San Diego.

“The mission to Israel is a tremendous opportunity for American law enforcement professionals to learn from their counterparts in the Middle East, draw from the latest developments in terrorism prevention and bring these methods back home to implement in their communities,” she said in a statement.
