Diatribes of a Knucklehead 151217
American has over 10 million veterans under the age of 65 (see ref); men and women who are trained with weapons and defensive tactics.
What if County Sheriffs all over America started recruiting and training these vets for use as reserve a police force? Businesses could hire these vets who would have the authority of a law officer. This could help with our overwhelming number of homeless vets. Police officers all over America work in their off hours as security for events and establishments; wearing their uniform and service weapons. Why not use military veterans for these duties?
There are plenty of Veterans that would jump at the opportunity to work as reserve police officers. In an emergency a county could literally have hundreds of armed officers at a situation relatively quickly; allowing other police officers to police their assigned areas.
American society would be much safer if Sheriff’s all over America started creating a large reserve forces in case of emergencies and for everyday security.
