Lapid vows to beef up police forces, restore Israelis’ ‘personal security’

Prime Minister Yair Lapid visits the national police academy today and vows to beef up the country’s police forces to restore “personal security to Israelis.”

“We will place the personal security of the citizens of Israel at the top of our national priorities,” Lapid says.

Lapid promises to put 5,000 cops on the street in a multi-year plan, backed up by 26 Border Police companies and 30,000 volunteers in the national guard.

He also promises 450 traffic patrol vehicles.
