GA Driver Services Commissioner Returns from Prestigious Law Enforcement Leadership Training

July 9, 2018

Commissioner Spencer R. Moore of the Georgia Department of Driver Services (DDS) recently returned from Israel after an intensive two weeks of public safety and counterterrorism training with the country’s top policing executives. 

He joined police chiefs, sheriffs, and public safety commissioners and officials—and a senior corporate security manager—in a 21-member delegation of senior law enforcement officials from Georgia, Alabama and Tennessee who participated in the Georgia International Law Enforcement Exchange’s (GILEE) 26th annual peer-to-peer training program in partnership with Israel. While there, they studied best practices and the latest advances in community policing, counterterrorism, emergency management, advanced technologies and homeland security policies.

“It was an honor to be selected as a member of the 26th GILEE delegation to Israel. It was particularly helpful to address modern policing challenges with collaboration among different agencies, external organizations and the greater community,” commented Commissioner Moore. “It was an outstanding and enlightening experience, both professionally and personally.”

Founded in 1992, GILEE works continuously to improve public safety by enhancing inter-agency cooperation and educational training among the world’s top law enforcement communities. In this exchange, Israel is a key partner.  To date, it has offered more than 200 special briefings to more than 29,000 law enforcement officers, corporate security personnel and community leaders. The program has carried out more than 430 programs and produced 1,500 graduates.
