Senior US law enforcement officials visiting to study Israeli counterterrorism ops

Citing Israel as the world leader in counterterrorism, 15 senior American law enforcement officials from the Law Enforcement Exchange Program (LEEP) are spending 10 days in the country to observe multiple security agencies.

The program’s director, Steve Pomerantz, a retired FBI assistant director who led the organization’s counterterrorism unit, said LEEP is part of the US’s Jewish Institute for National Security Affairs, also known as JINSA.

While JINSA, a security think tank that primarily works with military personnel, was created in 1973, Pomerantz said LEEP was initiated for law enforcement leaders throughout the US shortly after the 911 terrorist attacks in 2001.
