Sheriffs against amnesty to march on Washington, DC
WND-TV
Sheriffs around the country are planning to march on the nation's capital, hoping to send a message to President Barack Obama and Congress that they oppose amnesty for illegal immigrants. The Dec. 10 rally in Washington, D.C., is being organized by two sheriffs from Massachusetts — Bristol County Sheriff Thomas Hodgson and Plymouth County Sheriff Joseph McDonald. They have challenged America's other sheriffs, asking for at least 200 of them to join in paying a visit to the Capitol to make a stand against amnesty and plead for Congress and the president to secure the border.

The Des Moines Register
Des Moines, Iowa-area police chiefs are studying ways to streamline the police hiring process, a move that could save taxpayer dollars, provide a regional location to screen candidates and administer exams, and allow job candidates to fill out just one application and undergo the testing process just once. The chiefs also hope an improved recruitment process will lead to a larger and more diverse pool of candidates.

Lasers as training tools
Officer.com
We already know what the laser can do on the street. For training, it can do much more. The laser can predict the strike of the bullet. It is a great tool when an officer is unable to acquire sight alignment because of some mechanical reason. In training, the most popular use of a laser is as a diagnostic tool. Instructors cannot efficiently see what the student shooter sees and allow them to assume a "natural" shooting position, complete with sight picture and sight alignment.
