JNS.org – Fifty-two American police officers arrived in Israel on Sunday as part of a “Police Unity Tour” delegation.

Officers from both countries participated in a joint ceremony, saluting one another and standing at attention as the flags of both nations were raised and the American and Israeli national anthems were played.

“We have the utmost respect for you, and we will do everything to make you feel at home,” an Israeli police officer stated while addressing his American counterparts during the ceremony.

The Israeli officer also took a moment to commemorate fallen police officers from both countries. “In their names we stand here,” he said.
