Tel Aviv Hires 30 Young Jews to Bolster Its Police Force

Download PDF for this date

Tel Aviv will shortly get thirty new policemen, it was learned here today.

Thirty-one Jewish young men have enrolled and were sent to the Police School at Jerusalem. One of the group will remain on duty in Jerusalem, while the others return to maintain law and order in the 100 per cent Jewish city.

A special delegation was recently appointed by Vice-Mayor R###keach of Tel Aviv to meet with government authorities to discuss the alarming decrease of Jews of the Tel Aviv police force.

Small pay and other adverse conditions have been forcing Jews to seek more lucrative employment elsewhere and the Tel Aviv force was gradually losing its Jewish character as a result of the influ### of British policemen.
