Jamal Da’abas   – cop for the day

Jamal’s parents, who were aware of the dream, shared it with the community policing commander in the village and his dream became a reality when he was made an officer for one day.

Jamal was picked up from his home on Tuesday by police officers in a police car and was taken to the local station. There, he was given a police uniform tailored to his size and the station commander, Amir Hayut, granted him his rank and badge.

Jamal visited the various offices while the station policemen gave him a tour and demonstration of the police procedures.

Jamal also visited the police dog kennel at the Galilee headquarters, as well as the horse ranches of the Israel Police, where he was acquainted with the horses.

At the end of the day, Jamal met with Northern District Commander Shimon Lavi, who gave him a citation.

The policemen who took part in this special activity were very excited and accepted Jamal with warmth and love.

“In our part, it has been a great privilege to fulfil Jamal’s dream and give him such a special experience of taking a close look at the police world and becoming a police officer for one day,” they said.
