Militarization of police refers to the use of military equipment and tactics by law enforcement officers. This includes the use of armored vehicles, assault rifles, flashbang grenades, sniper rifles, and SWAT teams. Proponents argue that this equipment increases officers’ safety and enables them to better protect the public and other first responders. Opponents argue that police forces which received military equipment were more likely to have violent encounters with the public.
I believe the police should have access to military grade equipment as they are another service to the public like the military. However, this equipment would be kept safe with only available use in extreme situations. That and only rifles and such, no tanks.
they are currently having other teams like a bomber squad and some other stuff so they dont need to have someone else to be able to use it so no they dont need to since they are mainly used for all these other things and there is also other stuff like delta squad
