Shabtai wondered, "What did she express in the current situation?" and said that "the declaratory change will damage the trust of the citizens in every encounter with a police officer." He emphasized that he was not caught to a situation where the appointed minister asks to adopt a policy and is not answered. "When the citizens of Israel care about the police, they think of an organization that is not biased or tainted by political interests," he explained.
