President Isaac Herzog meets with Israel Police commissioner Kobi Shabtai for their first official work meeting since Herzog took office in July.

Herzog thanks Shabtai for the work of the police in capturing four of the six Palestinian security prisoners who escaped from the high-security Gilboa Prison last week.

The president also says that the eradication of crime and violence in the Arab communities is of the utmost importance.

“Citizens in the State of Israel must feel safe when they wake up and go to work and feel that they can return home safely.”
