Training

The standards of police performance are being called into question every day.  There is a simple solution to this problem.  We need to, once again, upgrade the professionalism of American law enforcement.

We should require a two year training period to be a police officer.  We should pay our officers better and provide them with the equipment they need to do their jobs.  Every officer should have a Taser, baton, OC spray, body armor and two handguns, a patrol rifle and a patrol car that is at least partially armored.

Our officers must have higher physical standards, and should be better able to perform arrest control techniques and employ other less lethal weapons.  We need to be able to prepare better reports, and conduct more complete investigations.  We need more continuing education so that we keep up on new technologies, legal questions, and the latest procedures; that's what the SGT Says.
