CACP Statement on Israel
The Canadian Association of Chiefs of Police denounces the terrorist attacks conducted by Hamas that occurred in Israel this past weekend. Nothing can justify the slaughter of innocent people going about their lives. We are disgusted that anyone would celebrate these attacks, or in any way associate these acts as support for the Palestinian people.
The CACP supports Israel’s right to defend itself. Canadian police services across the country are vigilant in supporting Jewish communities here in Canada, as they gather to mourn the tremendous loss of family and friends in Israel.
Hate and terrorism have no place in civil society. The police community will do what it can to support the Israel National Police as they seek out those responsible.
