    President Obama to order more training, oversight for military gear to cops.....

    Coming soon to a Police Dept near you. Police Officers to wear Body Cameras. BO is doling out 75 mil for the new equipment. What say ye?


    President Barack Obama is expected to sign an executive order to encourage more oversight of federal programs that dole out military gear to local police departments, senior administration officials said Monday. The executive order will direct agencies that distribute military-style equipment to local police to require training for cops that receive the gear. The president will also require officials to create a central database to track the supplies, as a significant number of weapons and vehicles previously allocated have gone missing.

    Obama does plan to dole out one new piece of equipment to police departments that will likely please civil liberterians: The White House will allocate $75 million dollars over three years to provide police departments with up to 50,000 body-worn cameras for their officers.....snip~

    Good afternoon MMC

    So much shopping to do with taxpayers' dollars and only two more years for the spree. It'll be like Christmas in the White House for the next 25 months.

    And of course, this initiative does nothing to address any of the real problems facing the country.

    What police departments where? The article doesn't say.

    There are something like 900,000 law enforcement officers in the USA.

    Yeah. These are state and local departments. They have to apply for the equipment and there is already a strict training element to satisfy the grant.

    I'm pretty sure that $75 million dollars is a drop in the bucket compared to money spent on armored vehicles and para-military gear. Police are a civilian organization that are around to "protect and serve".

    I guess you never know...the Syracuse police department may need to use their new 658k mine resistant vehicle
    Syracuse police quietly add $658,000 war surplus mine-resistant vehicle to armored fleet | syracuse.com
    I'm positive though that vest camera's will result in Police officers being held accountable for their actions.

    Good! Police departments don't need to be standing armies.

    Heya TB Yeah it didn't say.....nor about what the Fed has already doled out.


    On a call with reporters, administration officials would not say whether the president supports or opposes bipartisan efforts in Congress to ban local police departments from receiving recycled armored vehicles from the war in Afghanistan and certain kinds of assault rifles.

    The president’s planned executive action also does not appear to immediately affect the 460,000 weapons and other controlled pieces of military equipment that have already been doled out from the Pentagon to local law enforcement agencies, including more than 5,000 Humvees and 92,000 guns.....snip~

    I think this is a really good executive order.
