Should 'Police' Be Armed?

Most police officers in the United Kingdom, New Zealand and other smaller countries are routinely unarmed, whereas in the rest of the world, policemen are routinely armed.

In the UK, some officers, such as those involved in diplomat protection work, border security and anti-terrorism work do more routinely carry firearms. In other countries such as the United States, police weapons are frequently cited in relation to issues about police militarization and so there are sometimes calls for a reduction in police reliance on firepower or the adoption of other force technologies.

Yet, in a rapidly changing society, where terrorism and armed crime remain pressing issues, it is questioned whether having unarmed police is anything more than naive idealism. Posted in: #Coffee Room

Today, nobody knows when and what emergency will crop up in which place. It's always better to be prepared and anticipating than to be sorry after letting some incident happen. We could probably have stricter restrictions regarding the misuse of firearms and have bigger punishments to serve as deterrents for the same, rather than completely doing away with firearms.

The cops will have to be armed because the arms exist.

Even with the special selection measures and intensive training given to firearms officers, mistakes sometimes occur, and innocent people are shot.
