To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department, which UK police forces have (a) provided and (b) received training from Israeli police or security services in each of the last five years; and what that training consisted of in each such case.
15 October 2014
The Home Office does not hold information on all official visits by English and Welsh police officers to Israel, including on the provision of training to the Israeli police or security services.
Section 26 of the Police Act (1996) provides the authority for international police assistance to other countries. Under this authorisation process, there have not been any occasions in the last five years where UK police forces have specifically provided training to, or received training from, the Israeli police or security services.
