“During the British Mandate (1920-1948) the Palestine Police formed a crucial institution in which British and Palestinian Jewish and Arab Policemen worked together. The success and challenges faced by the Palestine Police are key to a proper understanding of the history of the Palestine Mandate. For example how did the Police relate to the local population, enforce law and manage crisis situations?” – The Middle East Centre Archive – St. Anthony’s College, https://www.sant.ox.ac.uk/mec/meca-palestine-police-oral-history.html
