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 State Police of New Hampshire is among the departments that have sent delegates to Israel. Colonel Quinn served as Director of the New Hampshire State Police between 2010 and 2016. Director Col. Quinn attended a training in Israel in 2011 with the ADL where he was trained by Israeli police spokesperson, Micky Rosenfeld. Col. Quinn is now Assistant Commissioner of the Department of Safety.
The New Hampshire State Police is also one of the departments that uses Israeli private-sector technology. Private Israeli security firms have contracts with both public and private security sectors. One of the private security companies that transfer technology to US police departments is the Israel-based Cellebrite. Cellebrite is a “mobile forensics” firm that manufactures data extraction, transfer and analysis devices for cellular phones and mobile devices for law enforcement, military and intelligence, and corporate customers.
The department spent $9,746.79 to crack into phones using Israeli tech firm Cellebrite, according to public record requests by Motherboard. New Hampshire State Police uses Cellebrite’s technology to bypass phone passwords and security mechanisms to retrieve call logs, text messages, and in some cases even deleted data.
