Israel Police Chief to retire

After months of leading the Israel Police on the front lines of one of the worst waves of terror attacks in years, acting commissioner Assistant Chief Bentzi Sau announced Sunday that he would retire at the end of the month, bringing to an end over 38 years of service in the organization.

Sau said Sunday that he is “grateful to have had the privilege to serve the citizen of Israel for 38 years in a series of jobs and challenges,” and “proud of the thousands of police and Border Police officers and volunteers I commanded during my service.”

Sau will stay in the organization until the end of the month in order to help incoming commissioner Roni Alsheich – the former deputy head of the Shin Bet Israel Security Agency – with his transition to the new post.
