Moultrie - With the threat of war with Iraq growing, would you visit the Middle East? One South Georgia Police Chief is doing just that. He's going to Israel to learn how their law enforcement deals with terrorism.
It's not exactly the idea of a quiet paid vacation. Moultrie Police Chief Mike Boyd says, "The Middle East is always a volatile area and we will be under the wings of Israeli National Police the whole time we're there."
Chief Boyd is going to Israel to get hands-on experience with their law enforcement. He says, "Hopefully it will open my eyes to new things and ways of handling common everyday things we have here."
The Georgia International Law Enforcement Exchange Program pays for airfare and a place to stay. Chief Boyd, along with a dozen others, will see how Israeli Police handle everyday calls including Terrorism. He explains, "This will be an opportunity to go and find out first hand from those who have dealt with it for years."
Chief Boyd is excited to see a different police culture. His wife and two kids get worried when they see footage like this on TV. He says, "They are a little apprehensive, but they also know it's a once in a lifetime opportunity."
If the threat of war with Iraq becomes a reality, the trip to Israel could be put on hold. It will be up the the state to decide if it's too dangerous to travel overseas.
Chief Boyd is scheduled to leave this summer. The Georgia International Law Enforcement Program has been around for almost a dozen years. Officers do not have to work in Georgia, the program has applicants from as far as Canada.
