Quick emergency response times. Homicides are rare. And 50 surveillance cameras are posted in public areas and constantly monitored.

That’s how the city of Akko, Israel, was described to Canton officials and members of the Police Department at a presentation on Tuesday about security.

A delegation of several officials from Israel, including Shimon Lankri, Akko’s mayor, met with local officials to discuss economic development, security, community issues and other topics of mutual interest.
