Two more police commanders under investigation for sexual misconduct

Two additional police commanders are currently under investigation for sexual harassment and sexual assault, the Justice Ministry said Tuesday, in the latest embarrassment to a police force reeling from a series of sexual misconduct scandals in recent weeks and months.

Both officers serve in northern Israel and hold the rank of Nitzav Mishneh (“Commander”), which is the rank held by station and subdistrict commanders, among other high-level roles in the police.

On Monday night, one of the commanders was questioned by Justice Ministry investigators for five hours, following allegations that he sexually harassed and attempted to grope a female police volunteer in her 20s who came to him for help with her duties in the police force.
