US Police Chiefs Travel to Israel

Why are alarm bells going off inside my head?

Milwaukee County sheriff goes to Israel

Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke is going to Israel to learn more about homeland security.

He's going with group of about a dozen police chiefs and county sheriffs from major American cities from Sunday through April 16.

They will discuss best practices in airport security, intelligence analysis and sharing, mass casualty management, security for large groups of people and bomb disposal technology and practices.

In a statement, Clarke says he sees the Israeli police and Israeli National Defense as the pre-eminent authorities for homeland security having to deal with it on a daily basis for decades.

The American Israel Educational Foundation is paying for the trip. chicagotribune
