Israel’s deputy police attaché to North America discusses his country’s counter-terrorism training program for U.S. law enforcement personnel and the increasing threat from homemade explosives while emphasizing prevention, intelligence-led policing, and an overall law-enforcement strategy that “enables citizens to live normal lives.”
