Chief of Israeli Police Roni Alsheikh Encourages ADI Trainees

For the third straight year, volunteers from the Jerusalem Police Department ran the Jerusalem Winner Marathon together with children from ADI Jerusalem. This inspiring project has captured the hearts of disability advocates around the world. The most recent fan is Roni Alsheikh, the former deputy head of the Shabak and current Chief of Israeli Police. The Chief of Israeli Police was so impressed by his officers’ volunteerism that he had to stop by to witness one of the final training sessions prior to the race.

Following the race, he expressed his delight with the project: “This initiative with ADI is tremendous.  Following the visit, he expressed his delight with the project: “This initiative with ADI is tremendous. Our role as police officers is twofold: to serve and protect. It is important for us to remember that we are here to serve the citizens and not just deal with the criminals. It is our responsibility to provide services to citizens on the streets, as well as seek out opportunities to give back to the community. As police officers, it is our job to be model citizens and lend a hand to the weakest members of society. Working with ADI is the ideal project for my police officers in that it helps remind them who they are as human beings and why they became police officers in the first place.”Our role as police officers is twofold: to serve and protect.  It is important for us to remember that we are here to serve the citizens and not just deal with criminals.  It is our responsibility to provide services to people on the streets, as well as seek out opportunities to give back to the community.  As police officers, it is our job to be model citizens and lend a hand to the weakest members of society.  Working with ADI is the ideal project for my police officers in that it helps remind them who they are as human beings and why they became police officers in the first place.”
