How campaigners convinced police chiefs to dump Israel junket

Two high-ranking police officials have dropped out of a planned training junket in Israel after campaigning from local human rights activists.

Working from public records, activists learned that Jody Kasper, the police chief of Northampton, Massachusetts, had accepted an invitation from the Anti-Defamation League, a major Israel lobby group, to join a delegation this week.

Activists also identified Colonel Matthew Birmingham, the director of the Vermont State Police, as one of 15 high-ranking police officials on the junket to Israel.

After meeting with members of their communities, Kasper and Birmingham recently announced that they would pull out of the delegation.
