Biography[edit]

Segalovich was born in 1959 to Nahum and Tahia. He grew up in Tel Aviv and served in the Paratroopers Brigade during his national service in the Israel Defense Forces. He subsequently studied law at Tel Aviv University and volunteered in the Civil Guard. He joined the Police and worked as a prosecutor in the Sharon region, before becoming head of the Investigations Department in Netanya.

He later became a trainer at the College for Senior Police Officers, before being appointed commander of the Eilat area police in September 2002. Eighteen months later he left to establish the national economic crime unit in the national police headquarters. In 2008 he became the first head of the Lahav 433 unit, which focused on national crime and corruption. The following year he became commander of the Investigations and Intelligence Division, a post he held until retiring in 2013.[1]

In 2016 he joined the Yesh Atid party.[1] After the party became part of the Blue and White alliance, he was given the twenty-eighth slot on the joint list,[2] and was subsequently elected to the Knesset as the alliance won 35 seats.
