Police boost forces ahead of New Year’s celebrations

Israel Police are stepping up security measures ahead of New Year’s celebrations to both ensure the festivities go smoothly and crack down on intoxicated drivers.

“General security measures taking place this evening and throughout the night for New Year’s Eve celebrations taking place across the country and in major cities,” a police spokesperson says.

This includes “extra units, special patrol units,” police say, “and border police are patrolling city centers, traffic police and volunteers also involved in preventing drinking and driving.”
