BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) - Baton Rouge Police Chief Carl Dabadie has spent the past week in Israel learning how to combat terrorism.

Dabadie on March 8 left to join other law enforcement officials from the U.S., Italy and Austria at the Anti-Defamation League’s National Counter-Terrorism Seminar.

Cpl. L’Jean McKneely, a Baton Rouge police spokesman, tells The Advocate (https://bit.ly/1ogINNO ) the weeklong seminar allows participants to attend high-level Israeli security briefings, providing them a “firsthand understanding” of terrorism’s impact on a civil society.

McKneely said numerous chemical plants and refineries, along with heavily-traveled corridors such as Interstate 10 and the Mississippi River Bridge, expose Baton Rouge to the threat of terrorism.
