Dozens of representatives from the Israeli National Police Force visited the LaGrange Police Department this week as a part of the Georgia International Law Enforcement Exchange, or GILEE.

The LaGrange Police Department is proud to be one of the Georgia Law Enforcement Agencies chosen to host and provide training to several Law Enforcement Executives from the Israeli National Police Force.  

GILEE is a joint project with Georgia State University, local, state, federal and international law enforcement as well as public safety agencies. 

“The Israeli National Police representatives were extremely engaged in our department’s tactics and procedures as well as our successes in community policing,” said LPD Lt. Eric Lohr.

“We look forward to continuing this collaborative relationship in the future.”

GILEE’s mission is to enhance law enforcement executive development and international cooperation for the provision of better law enforcement services and public safety through the protection of civil rights.
