The race to be police commissioner

This week Public Security Minister Gilad Erdan (Likud) is expected to announce his candidate to head the Israel Police, who among other things, will be tasked with repairing the public image of one of the country’s most important public organizations, and one that has been through a series of embarrassing and high-profile scandals in recent years, including sexual misconduct investigations against a series of top commanders.

Though there has been speculation that an outside appointment could be made – possibly from the IDF or elsewhere in the security establishment, the next Chief of Police is expected to be one of three candidates from within the police – acting Commissioner and Tel Aviv Commander Asst.-Ch Bentzi Sau, Northern District Commander Asst.-Ch Zohar Dvir, and Southern District Commander Asst.-Ch Yoram Ha-Levy.

You don’t mess with the Zohar Dvir
