Good thing the police are exempt from the safe storage laws we peasants are required to abide by.


Hope this link works but it’s the top story on Marion County Flash Alerts page.
Screenshot for when it rolls off the front page in a few hours.

I would think policy would allow them to store that equipment in the trunk of a car so they can be mobilized quicker for emergency situations.
That is a horrible policy if that's the case.

Staging it inside the home by the door would add all of 30 seconds to his response time. At minimum the rifle should be removed from the vehicle each night.

To start with, most rigs now days do not have a trunk as I drive a Jeep TJ and my wife a Mazda SUV and a lot of folks have trucks and it did say it was their POV.

But I do agree a basic gear bag by the front door would have been a better option even if for nothing else but the rifle.

The article also does not say if they were at home, a friend’s house or a motel so there could have been other reasons he did not take the items out of the car, there is still no excuse but we are left to make assumptions.

While I would "hope" it was in a trunk? I still can't for the life of me understand the rifle. The gear? OK, maybe. As mentioned he could easily have a gear bag and just leave it by the door. The rifle is the really bad one. If that rifle ends up at some high profile crime the tax payers will be expected to pay out.
