As part of the Military Police activity to increase enforcement, a wide-scale operation by the Military Police soldiers took place earlier last week along the northern border, from Rosh Hanikra to Metula.
The objective of the operation – enforcing traffic laws and preventing car accidents, enforcement activity regarding drugs and securing weapons.
During the drug prevention activity Military Police soldiers arrived at outposts along the border and conducted activity in order to detect drugs, during which hundreds of urine samples were taken from soldiers serving in these outposts.
Following the results of the sample, investigations were started against soldiers suspected of drug use, and the findings will be handed over for legal opinion by the Military Advocate General.
As part of the traffic enforcement and prevention of car accidents involving military vehicles in the sector, covert and overt squad cars, motorcyclists and radars were used. During the operation tickets were given to traffic offenders, who will be brought to judgement.
Over a hundred Military Police officers, Warrant officers and soldiers from the CID and the Central Unit for Traffic Control took part in the operation.
It should be noted that increasing enforcement and prevention activities are part of the Military Police’ primary goals.
