Summary

In Israel, police integration is limited mainly by the supply of Arab citizens who wish to join the police. Many Arab Israelis express skepticism that participation in the criminal justice system will improve services, worrying that Arab officers will instead be used as collaborators in anti-Arab repression. Consequently, interviews with police officers paint a picture of an institution that wishes to provide better services to minorities but struggles to do so due to a lack of citizen buy-in. I explore detailed station-level data covering a six-year period on police officers’ religious identities, and I uncover processes through which the police assign officers from different groups to different locations through interviews with high-ranking police officers.
