One of the organizations that organize and sponsor these trainings is the Anti-Defamation League (ADL). The ADL is a non-profit that works to combat anti-Semitism and advocate for Israel. In this context, the ADL runs a National Counter-Terrorism Seminar that has sent hundreds of top ranking officials to Israel to learn about combatting terror since 2003. That same year the ADL established an Advanced Training School that brings delegations of Israeli law enforcement to speak to American law enforcement officials, involving over 1,000 U.S. participants since the program began.
The Police of Albuquerque, New Mexico, is among the departments that have sent delegates to Israel. Officials serving in the Albuquerque Police Department attended a training in Israel with the ADL as delegates of the National Counter Terrorism Seminar (NCTS) in 2011. A 16-month investigation by the Department of Justice found that the Albuquerque Police Department engaged in a pattern or practice of excessive force, including deadly force.
