Abstract

The Israel Police still maintains some of the traditional features that characterized the police during the time of the British Mandate. It is a national, centralized, quasi-military force. The paper discusses the few formal channels of interaction that the Israel Police maintains with the community. The paper argues that to become a modern, effective and responsive force, the Israeli police ought to engage in direct and indirect dialogue through existing channels with the community. These channels are reviewed, and the potential for cooperation between the community and the police is discussed. One of the major channels for such cooperation is the Israel Civil Guard, which is comprised of citizens who voluntarily help the police, and thus the community. The paper analyzes the existing polic-community interface, and discusses its potentials for reducing crime and victimization in the community.
