It was interesting time for a senior delegation of Israel Police commanders to visit the Anti-Defamation headquarters in New York.
The delegation, headed by Police Commissioner Yohanan Danino visited the headquarters on April 19, just days after the Boston Marathon bombing. The meeting had been planned already before the bombing.
The ADL, in a press release, said the meeting “helped deepen the Israel Police’s understanding of the breadth and scope of ADL’s work with American law enforcement on such issues as countering extremism, domestic terrorism and hate crimes. ”
ADL has been known to work closely with law enforcement agencies like the FBI and ATF.
The Israeli delegation met with Abraham H. Foxman, ADL National Directo, and various ADL experts on law enforcement.
“The Israel Police continue to play an important role in working closely with counterterrorism experts to share their insights with American police commanders,” Foxman said in a statement. “As we were reminded by the Boston Marathon attack, terrorism knows no borders, and we are fortunate that Israel Police officials are willing to work alongside us and share best practices in counterterrorism with their American counterparts.”
