According to the Middle East English-language newspaper Al Monitor, the NYPD has opened up a new bureau–in Israel. The NYPD Israeli office is operating not out of the U.S. embassy, but out of its own station. It even has an NYPD sign over the door and another inside reading, “New York Police Department, the best police department in the world.”
According to Al Monitor, the decision to open an office in Israel was so that the NYPD and the Israeli police could learn from each other.
“Behind the opening of the branch in the Holy Land is the NYPD decision that the Israeli police is one of the major police forces with which it must maintain close work relations and daily contact,” the article stated.
