Some don't even have time to do proper firearms/batons/gear use training/security/maintenance.
Not personal experience but that's what I hear from friends in different law enforcement branches(?).
Yes as a Retired Police Officer I will tell you that other than the recert one time a year most Police Officers don't even touch their firearm other than resting your hand on it LOL, I always thought that we should get more training but Departments don't like shelling out money for training or ammo with the prices that ammo is these day's....
I suppose that is what it all comes down to though-police could/should get more training in a lot of things, but there's just no one willing to pay for it, and even if there was, teaching them how to use a pair of pliers is probably way down the priority list!
