Police: Israel

Question for Home Office

UIN 209808, tabled on 26 September 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.
