The Cabinet on Sunday unanimously approved a multi-billion shekel plan to bolster police enforcement across Israel, with a special emphasis on Arab communities, which suffer from some of the worst crime rates in the country.

The proposal, which was put forward by Public Security Minister Gilad Erdan, will budget NIS 2 billion over the next five years to build 10 new police stations and recruit an additional 2,600 police officers to the current force of over 28,000 police.
