The shocking case of rape in the fence arouses great anxiety among many citizens, the lack of personal security for the residents and the lack of thousands of police officers, gives its signals.
Mayors demand from the Prime Minister and the Minister of Internal Security to reinforce police officers and establish police stations.
As we know, there is a shortage of police stations in large cities such as Lod or Bat Yam, where there are many criminal and security incidents.
Now it turns out that even in the developing cities, there is not a sufficient police force relative to the number of residents.
The city of Beer Ya'akov, one of the developing cities in the center, currently has 35,000 inhabitants and is on the way to 50,000 inhabitants with the population of a large neighborhood that is being built these days, in Beer Ya'akov there is an urban police force with ten patrol officers and 11 inspectors.

Nisim Gozlan, Mayor of Beer Ya'akov
- "In recent years, I have met with several ministers with the aim of establishing an official police station of Beer Ya'akov. A police station that will include an innovative and serious building, over 100 standards for police officers and a real strengthening of the police force that exists today, which does sacred work and faces many challenges! The latest and heinous incident in the fence shocked and shook us all and illustrates to all of us what I knew even then, the streets need to be flooded with policemen and the personal security of the citizens should be strengthened."

In his letter to the Prime Minister and the Minister of Internal Security, the mayor demands the establishment of a police station for Beer Ya'akov - "We were all shocked by the heinous and sickening case of rape in Gedera and I would like to praise the police and security forces for apprehending the criminal. Beer Ya'akov is currently associated with the Ramla Police Station, which is loaded with difficult objectives and challenges and is unable to respond Provides for today's Beer Ya'akov. In the city there is a policing point combined with police officers and municipal inspectors who deal in an extraordinary and commendable way with a load of inquiries, but due to the circumstances find it difficult to provide the full range of response that the city's residents need and deserve.
The personal safety of the residents of Beer Ya'akov is at the forefront of my mind and I'm sure it is the same for you.
In recent years, I have met for work sessions with the rotating ministers in the Ministry of Internal Security.
As part of the meetings, it was agreed on the establishment of an official police station in Beer Ya'akov.
This letter is intended to require you to take action to approve, within the budget of the Ministry of Internal Security of the 2023 budget of the State of Israel, a police station for Beer Ya'akov on the implications arising from this, including construction, standards for dozens of police officers, and more.
