Jerusalem District Commander Niso Shaham was questioned under caution on Wednesday over suspicions of sexual harassment, indecent assault, and illicit sexual relations.
Shaham, who is suspected of sexually harassing female police officers under his command, has taken a forced leave of absence, following a recent investigation conducted in the Israel Police.
As part of the affair, Jerusalem periphery police chief, Commander Nissim Edri, has also taken forced leave. Edri was investigated on suspicion that he was aware of Shaham's actions and did not report as required by law.
