Following the exclusive interview in "Israel Today" with the new commander of the southern border, Deputy Superintendent Tomer Eldar, the Negev Rescue Committee and the Negev Promotion Forum call for the immediate strengthening of the Southern District by about 1,000 standards and to increase the punishment.
In an interview, Elder admitted that he lacked the manpower to perform all the tasks he would like.
He said he would like to double the workforce in the county.
The Negev Rescue Committee stated following the interview: "The main and immediate demand is to strengthen the police forces in the Negev region by another 1,000 police officers."
Beer Sheva Mayor Rubik Danilovich met yesterday with Justice Minister Gideon Saar and told him that "the justice system must be mobilized for the task of returning governance to the Negev and eradicating crime."
As you may recall, a man was shot dead last night by gunfire fired at him from a passing vehicle in the village of Deir Hanna.
Two people who were with him were injured, one of them lightly and the other badly.
Julie Kate, a member of the Meitar-Carmit Council, and Ortal Perlman Shmueli, a former member of the Be'er Sheva Council, one of the leaders of the Negev Promotion Forum, responded: The police must be strengthened at a budgetary and image level, work on the priorities in the allocation of manpower and change the punishment policy, so that the effort that police officers and fighters invest in the field will not be in vain.
"We are now witnessing a practice that simulates a perforated tool - the police are stepping up their efforts to stop the criminals, but they are easily released through the revolving door of the justice system. If the sovereign does not intervene urgently - the public may take power and reach dangerous anarchy."
The Negev Rescue Committee said: "We are pleased that the Israeli police, who are working very hard, are also beginning to say out loud: We need help. "The space is groaning under the burden of the missions, and everyone with their eyes in their heads understands that it will not last long. We will continue to stand guard for full equality and the right to security for all residents of the Negev."
