    Beneli shotguns, huh? There's money well spent. Troops here in my district that work my county specifically, our prosecutor bought them ALL RRA rifles. Pretty sweet one's at that.
    Why are there so many babies on O.com? Creole, you and your buddy JPSO Recruit help me out on this one....

      Our prosecutor bought the troopers that work our county car radios so they could actually communicate with us. I guess when they went to 800mhz, they took the other radios out. We just got the 800's and still have the old system as well.

        Do they no longer have ILEEN in their cars? I can't understand that move, considering the number of smaller departments and Town Marshal's they work with that don't have the trunked 800 digital service.

        As to the Taser issue; for a department that rarely has back up for it's Officers, I would think they would want every option available for their people. This sounds like a decision made by a desk jockey or a civilian attorney

          This is what happens when your agency fears the courtroom more than it does a funeral parlor.

            It's all about image. Nothing trumps that.

              I can tell you that the attitudes of some younger officers are different from some of the dinosaur officers who would risk their life for anything, regardless if the situation was basically suicide. Basically it is like this:

              You don't provide some officers with the option of a rifle, and just give them a handgun, then don't expect them to go running head on into battle where someone is armed with an AK, SKS, etc..??? Anyone else seeing this?

              Is this attitude right? Should police officers demand at least the ability to be equal when it comes to dealing with people who are being violent? I can't say I blame an officer who only has a handgun from not wanting to confront someone armed with an AK-47. Obviously every situation would be different, for example, is there a way for an officer with just a handgun to safely get within feet of a person with a high powered rifle, thus the handgun would have a good chance at being effective?

              Is the era of the street officer running into battle, regardless of what the suspect is armed with, over?

                You hit the nail right on the head. ISP is so caught up on "tradition" and looks that the safety of
                The troopers takes a backseat. To much micromanaging!!
