Police Training has Gone to the Toilet…Literally

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]There is a major issue happening in Washington, D.C. with the Capitol Hill police. It is an issue that is so controversial and so serious that the decision has been made to offer some specialized training to the officers. Curious? Well, be curious no longer.

The Capitol Hill Police are being training on how to go to the bathroom.

[/vc_column_text][banner300 banner=”5517620b381df”][vc_column_text]This new training on using the restroom, which has come about after at least three instances of officers leaving their service weapons behind when finished, was discussed during a congressional hearing on Wednesday. Capitol Police Chief Kim Dine said, “We are now providing additional training on what to do when you have to go to the bathroom.”

Officers who are first-time offenders to leaving their gun in the bathroom face a minimum five-day suspension. Dine, however, is considering increasing the suspension to 30 days. Any officer who is a repeat violator could be fired.

Dine did say that he doesn’t believe that officers who left their guns in the bathroom unattended intended to do so. He obviously understands when you have to go, you have to go. However, he thinks such carelessness needs to face a reprimand of accountability.

The department is installing lock boxes around the Capitol so that police can safely store their weapons to go to the bathroom or any other reason.

So, due to three cases of a gun being left in the bathroom, the entire police department for Capitol Hill needs to be retrained on how to go properly. The training for police has literally gone to the toilet.
