    Default CEDAP. LE Rescue tools

    Can our local LEO ask for rescue tools and then maybe store them at the FD?

    Just a thought

    The organization applying still has to have a need for them to have an argument, meaning people trained to use them on a regular basis. It can be done but more with the detection equipment than the HRTs. As long as the stuff serves the community of the applicant it doesn't matter where they sit, but since those tools are more meant for FDs the chances would be slimmer having the LEO ask for them.

    Got to agree with BC79er there on that point however, nothing gambled , nothing lost! Cooperative agreements with multi-agency involvment are encouraged so you might be able to make an arguement based upon:

    LEA investigating the MV accidents and the need to quickly clear roadways, use during investigative aspects of explosions or collapsed buildings, breaking into fortified containers etc. for execution of search warrants and also for use of their SWAT team for building entry or hostage rescue ( by the way, before retiring from LE we used the tool for exactly those last two purposes in our department on several occasions, borrowing it from the FD).

    Yea, yea I know it is a longshot and a stretch but, I have seen stranger things funded! Just a little thinking WAY outside the box!

    Now as a complete bystander to any LE operations, I would have thought the sounds of a hydraulic pump running outside a hostage situtation might tip someone off? Hmmm??? These situations didn't make it on to the Worlds Stupidist Criminal Show?

    Thinking we are gonna have to watch the Jack D stockpile a lot closer over in the waiting bar! Worried you maybe getting to much out of the box!!!

    LOL , Wave I did say it might be a stretch, admittedly a long stretch but, have you ever heard how much noise the mobile command post makes with it's generators, helicopters overhead etc.. Noise distraction is frequently used to mask "explosive" entries, cutting torches and traditional battering ram type entries. Point well taken, although the statement was made to inspire the thought process.
