I established new police units and stations, led significant organizational moves, managed countless operations, and raised generations of police officers and commanders. After serving for over a generation in the organization, the time has come to hang up the uniform."

A long list of roles

Among Beitan's positions in the police over the years: Commander of the Tel Aviv District, Commander of the Southern District, Head of the Division for Logistics Planning, Commander of the College for Senior Officers, Superintendent of Lachish and Commander of the Ofakim and Ashkelon stations. Superintendent David Beitan informed the Commissioner that his retirement will take place upon completion of the round of appointments with the Minister of Internal Security and the completion of an orderly overlap with his replacement when determined.

"The decision was made in full coordination with the Commissioner of the Police Chief Superintendent Yaakov Shabtai and out of great mutual respect and appreciation," added Bitan, "the Israel Police and its officers are very dear to me and they are an inseparable part of my life." The Commissioner respected the Chief Commissioner's request , wished him success in the future and noted: "With my appointment to the post of commissioner and the building of the senior command staff of the police, I asked Superintendent David Beitan to stay and be appointed deputy inspector general.

To my delight, the head of Beitan responded to my request and before that it was set for a fixed period of time until we stabilize the organization together."

"Superintendent Beitan remains as my right hand for leading processes and changes in the organization at a time when the Israel Police is facing enormous challenges. Beitan is evident in his vast knowledge of the work of the police at all levels and the Israel Police used his extensive experience to lead important processes. I want to thank him for the decades in which he served in the organization and commanded a line A long time of units and I wish him success in whatever he turns to."
