One of the organizations that organize and sponsor these trainings is the Jewish Institute for National Security of America (JINSA). JINSA is a think tank that advocates for US-Israeli security cooperation, increased domestic military spending, and military aid to Israel, and has board members with close ties to US defense contractors. JINSA launched its Law Enforcement Exchange Program (LEEP) shortly after 9/11, and since 2002 has run annual trips to Israel for US federal, state, and local law enforcement. Over 11,000 additional American law enforcement officials have attended LEEP conferences nationwide, which bring in Israeli security officials as experts.
The Police Department of Cleveland, Ohio, is among the departments that have sent delegates to Israel. Prioleau Green served as Deputy Chief of Cleveland Police Department. Deputy Chief Prioleau Green attended a training in Israel with JINSA in 2006 as a delegate of LEEP. Deputy Chief Greens training also includes serving as a participant in the Second Fusion Centers Leadership Program (FCLP). FCLP is a five-day intensive program conducted at the Naval Postgraduate School Center for Homeland Defense and Security campus in Monterey, California for law enforcement officials from recognized state and major urban area fusion centers.
Deputy Chief Green is currently listed as a Manager at Cuyahoga County Public Safety and Justice Services, which operates the Northeast Ohio Regional Fusion Center (NEORFC). According to the ACLU, fusion centers can employ officials from federal, state and local law enforcement and homeland security agencies, as well as other state and local government entities, the federal intelligence community, the military and even private companies, to spy on Americans in virtually complete secrecy.
