C'tee Vote on Police Showing Identification

The Knesset Interior and Environmental Protection Committee is scheduled to vote, Monday, on a bill to require police officers in uniform to wear identification. The aim of the bill is to prevent officers from making it difficult to lodge complaints or sue them over violent behavior by hiding their identification.

If approved by the committee, the proposal will return to the Knesset for a vote on its second and third readings.
