    One of the organizations that sponsors 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 Boston University Police Department is among the campus police departments that have sent delegates to Israel. In December 2017, Chief Police of Boston University, presumably current Chief Kelly Nee, participated in an ADL delegation to Israel. The delegation visited the highly surveilled Old City of Jerusalem, as well as Israeli training and prison facilities. The trainings included information about addressing terrorist threats, particularly lone-wolf terrorists, as well as about policies and procedures for dealing with unexpected crime and emergency situations. Special emphasis was placed on securitizing the “soft targets” of infrastructure and public spaces through enhanced intelligence and planning.
