- Check this shit out SCC. We were sent to qualify at the academy today and the targets are broken so they only go out to the closest distance/3 yards. The range instructor said they were given the order to have everyone qualified even though the course is no longer up to State regulations. Said at Rahms direction we all need to be rushed thru before NATO in order to qualify for some federal funding (that CPD won't see a single cent of). A3 is no longer open for us to qualify at, nor will they allow us to go out south while on duty because it takes too long. Told us we can go on our own time if we want to shoot at the longer distances. This is a blatant bonehead move by what passes for leadership on this department. Our firearms course is shit as it is, this is unacceptable!
We can't think of any federal grants CPD would obtain for by having everyone qualified early. Local law enforcement gets block grants for all sorts of stuff, but annual qualifications don't ring any bells here.
