National Leadership Webinar:

Countering Calls to Ban U.S.-Israel Law Enforcement Exchanges

Founded in the wake of 9/11, JINSA’s Homeland Security Program organizes annual law enforcement exchanges between senior U.S. law enforcement executives and the Israel National Police in order to strengthen U.S. homeland security. On these exchange programs – trips to Israel and conferences in the U.S.–American officers learn effective methods and techniques to prevent and respond to terrorism from the world’s foremost experts.

In recent months, anti-Israel and pro-BDS organizations have stepped up an aggressive campaign of falsehoods and misinformation with the goal of having these exchanges banned.

Join JINSA Director of Homeland Security Programs Steven Pomerantz and three leading law enforcement professionals who participated in JINSA’s Homeland Security Program for a discussion on why these programs are important to keeping America safe and why the campaign to ban them must be countered.

Tuesday, September 15 – 3:00pm EDT
