Kansas City, MO - In a press release this afternoon, Kansas City Police Chief Terry Sunderland announced a new format for training recruits. KC administration has been looking for ways to cut costly spending, and came to the conclusion that real world weapons and live ammunition wasn't necessary in the force's training.
"It's just spent dollars we could use in so many other needed areas of the city. Our crumbling roads, trash problem, and non-accredited school systems are all in need of this funding" said Chief Sunderland. "This way, our fine police officers get the training they need, and we get to spend much needed appropriated dollars elsewhere."
Standard training will take place using the slingshot, and bow and arrow. Advanced training will include other small arms, the bazooka, and Gatling arrow launcher. Real firearms with live ammunition will still be used on a daily basis for active officers, though they will be encouraged to also carry their training weapons for additional firepower.
