Chief vows to increase Muslim enlistment in Israel Police

As the Arab sector continues to deal with rampant firearms crime and a disproportionally high murder rate, the Israel Police are working intensively to increase enlistment of Muslim officers and the general sense of law and order on the Arab street, National Police Commissioner Roni Alsheich said Tuesday.

“We are working to significantly increase the enlistment of Muslims in the police force,” Alsheich said at a ceremony in Nazareth, adding “recently we have been carrying out intensive work to strengthen police services and law enforcement and deterrence in the Arab society across Israel.”

For the most part, police plans center around the opening of new police stations and posts across the Arab sector in order to raise its profile, increase the available manpower to respond to crimes and increase the feeling of personal security for locals.
