JINSA's Law Enforcement Exchange Program Educates 14 Top Level Law Enforcement Officials in Israel

For more than ten years, JINSA has educated America's highest level law enforcement officials through a week long trip to Israel. While abroad, the American officials attend briefings and learn from their Israeli counterparts about everything from managing a coordinated response to a terrorist attack and intelligence processes to the mind of a suicide bomber. From June 18-26 2011, JINSA brought to Israel 14 law enforcement officials from the local, state, and federal levels.

W(h)ither Yemen?

Tackling these issues is key to ensuring Yemen's long-term stability and the principal way to protect America, argues JINSA Research Associate Zach Paikin.
