'Fighting crime is important, but it isn't everything'

Israel Police Commissioner Roni Alsheikh laid out his policing philosophy at Bar Ilan University's Hoshana Rabbah Torah study event, describing how he intends to shift the police from being enforcement-focused to preventing lawbreaking.

Alsheikh said that while fighting criminals "is the stuff movies are made of", it is a very narrow view of policing. According to Alsheikh, the police need to focus on preventing crimes from happening in the first place. "Fighting crime is important, but it isn't everything," he said.
