I think the training that these folks should get would be more in line with the MP type training. Courses in law and crowd control, hand to hand and police type training would be the best. Some basic weapons training would be required, but not emphasized.
try not to think in military terms, but more along police and security lines.
Another sore spot of mine....police training and techniques. We have tied the hands of our police departments by inadequately providing them with what they need to function effectively. The first of those needs being strong MEN who have met qualifications which are stringent. We have lowered the standards to meet this absurd idea that competition and high standards will somehow infringe upon the rights of those who can't measure up! And the Unions are a joke! We have men and women who join the forces just long enough to find some feeble excuse to sue for damages...sexual harrassment, etc. Again...we go back to personal responsibility. We have an environment where responsibility is a dirty word.
