Police Profiling

Please pray for Israeli Chief of Police, Roni Alsheikh, as he commissions a project seeking to assign members of Israel’s various communities who are local to an area to handle peace keeping efforts within their local community. His hope is that if police local to a specific group of people will enforce the law in those areas, they will be more effective at detecting the security threats unique to that area while not unfairly treating everyone in high risk areas as a security threat. This move will also allow for any mistakes to not be blamed on racial or ethnic tensions as the police officer in an area will ideally be a member of the local ethnic and racial demographic norms.
