Sau to stay on to aid police chief transition

Outgoing acting police commissioner Bentzi Sau announced Thursday night that he would stay on for four months to assist newly appointed Insp.-Gen. Gal Hirsch, in his transition to taking charge of the country’s top law enforcement position.

While Sau had earlier indicated he would quit as of September 1, he has agreed to stay until January 1 to aid Hirsch as he adjusts to the job. Sau said he decided to do so at the request of Public Security Minister Gilad Erdan, who chose Hirsch in consultation with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.
