Police chiefs struggling to recruit armed officers over conviction fears

The Guardian:

Officers are also angered by IPCC plans to toughen up measures after any shooting. The plans being considered by the home secretary would mean that officers are separated after a shooting, stopped from conferring while making statements, and required to give detailed accounts straight after an incident.

Personally, I’m not sure that anyone who thinks conferring  is a good thing should be allowed to carry a gun.
