Israeli police delegation comes to Savannah | savannahnow.com

A delegation of Israeli police officers visited Savannah on Friday and Saturday as part of a learning exchange program aimed at sharing techniques and culture.

The 18-member delegation was in town as part of the Georgia International Law Enforcement Exchange program — or GILEE — at Georgia State University.

“Each year, we send a delegation of senior Georgia officers to Israel and they send a delegation of senior Israeli officers,” said Garden City Police Chief David Lyons, himself a GILEE graduate and board member of the Georgia Association of Chiefs of Police. “We try to show them the best parts of Georgia… The purpose of the trip is educational — to share ideas and tips with each other.”

Garden City police and the Georgia Bureau of Investigation escorted the Israeli officers while they were in Chatham County.
