California law-enforcement chiefs to meet Israeli counterparts on ADL mission

A delegation of West Coast law enforcement executives will participate in a weeklong Anti-Defamation League counterterrorism training program in Israel.

The group will meet Oct. 6-13 with security experts, intelligence analysts and commanders in Israel’s national police and Israel Defense Forces to learn about effective methods of terror-attack prevention and response.

The ADL program is designed to help U.S. law enforcement executives gain firsthand understanding of the impact of terrorism on civil society and allow them to interact directly with their Israeli counterparts.

Among the mission participants from California are law enforcement executives from the Santa Clara County Sheriff’s Office and the Contra Costa County Sheriff’s Office.
