Police to ramp up Civil Guard in capital

The Jerusalem Municipality and police decided late Tuesday to bolster Civil Guard activity in neighborhoods across the city, in the wake of the terror attack.

“We decided to launch an extensive campaign to recruit volunteers for the Civil Guard in Jerusalem,” Mayor Nir Barkat said at the end of a briefing with Police Commissioner Yohanan Danino and Jerusalem District Commander of police Moshe Edri.

“I call on the residents of Jerusalem to volunteer and help strengthen the civilian aid to security forces.”

The Civil Guard is a division of the Israel Police and consists mainly of civilian volunteers.
