IPA Israel president

We set out on a new path after the elections in IPA Israel, that ended at the beginning of the year.
The intention is to provide more services, to be more efficient, to reach every member, every branch of the 120 that we have in Israel.
One of the emphases I put in front of me when I was elected as president of the section, is to lead the organization to professionalism, friendly service, innovation, and efficiency.
I am happy to launch the new website of IPA Israel that was built for you, the members in Israel and all over the World.  The website is clear, easy to navigate and technologically advanced.

The vision I set for us: “IPA as an organization that every police officer, prison guard, retiree and volunteer would want to be a member of.”

IPA Israel is one of the largest and most active in the world.
We also lead the world in the fields of professionalism and recruitment of new members. What does this mean to an IPA member, or a police officer checking whether he should join the organization?

How does it happen that a small country with a small police force has one of the largest sections in the world?

We are also the only section in the world where each of the 25,000 members has the opportunity to participate in the elections for all the organization’s positions.

Despite the great momentum, it is important to remember that the IPA is first and foremost an organization of friendships between police officers in the world and grants an international membership certificate that most police officers in the world know and respect.
This membership is reflected in mutual aid, help in emergencies, information requests, local assistance, hosting and much more.
Thousands of Israeli IPA members, who have received aid from friends around the world can testify to the value of the membership card.

IPA Israel is a large association, and the main activity is led by the chairmen of the branches, serving and retirees together with members of the IPA national board and the management team.
On the IPA website you can find and be updated on benefits, services, projects, foreign and domestic tourism, hospitality, culture, sports and many other topics that we encourage our members to participate in throughout Israel and the world.
It is important to emphasize that to become a partner you have to show interest, enter the website, follow the publications and the information that we will make sure to publish on a regular basis.

I invite you to join us and wish you all an interesting, wise, and useful browsing.

Dear friends and colleagues,

We set off on our saddest and most painful journey.

We have met with 3  families of our heroes, fallen officers of the Israel Police, in order to give them the donations gathered for them from IPA sections around the world and from policemen organizations in the USA. the “Hashomrim” organization, and the PBA organization from Long Island, New York.

We met with the family of Ravit Assaig, the fallen police officer. The family of the late Yigal Iloz, a police officer of the bomb squad, and the family of Avi Bozaglu, a detective at the Rahat police station. The families told us the story of the fallen officers. The heroism, the sacrifice, the striving for contact and, in fact, the story of the beautiful Land of Israel. We set with them listening to the stories. Hugging and together we mourn the loss of the most precious of all for them and for us.

We just started. The road is still long and we will reach them all.

President of the International Police Association Israel

We continue our sad and painful journey throughout Israel to visit the families of all our heroic policemen. Fallen police officers who fell defending the homeland in the “Iron Swords” War, in order to give to them donations that we collected for them from IPA sections around the world and from policemen organizations in the USA, the “Hashomrim” organization, and the PBA organization from Long Island, New York. Yesterday we visited the family of a special anti-terror unit fighter and the family of the late Mor Shakuri, who was killed in the battle at the Sderot police station. The 29-year-old Mor served as a patrolman at the Sderot police station and was about to get married soon.


We met the father who serves as a policeman in Hebron, the mother, and also the sister who received the bitter news while on her honeymoon abroad. We heard from them Mor’s story and the story of her bravery and heroic fighting on the roof of the station together with other policemen. Until she fell from a sniper’s bullet. We saw Photos and videos of Mor, all of which feature a huge and captivating smile. Mor’s fiancé, who is also a police officer, asked, after her fall, to move to serve at the Sderot police station to continue her legacy. Another story of an Israeli family with a gaping wound in the heart. Another story of bravery. Of determination. Another story of the beautiful and sad Land of Israel. We will continue to reach all the families, touch them, hug them and support them.
