A small town in California is outfitting its police with nunchucks in order to give its officers another non-lethal alternative to subduing a suspect and also with hopes that it will change the perception that police officers are aggressive.

KRCR-TV reports that that Anderson Police Department has trained its officers to use the nunchucks. Sgt. Casey Day told KRCR that nunchucks allow officers to "control a suspect instead of striking them."

Richland County Sheriff Leon Lott has fired Senior Deputy Ben Fields over the white deputy's violent arrest of a black student at a South Carolina high school, which was filmed by several students. Lott said Fields broke department policy in the arrest.

"It's not what I expect from my deputies, and it's not what I tolerate from my deputies," Lott said.

The sheriff said he's glad students documented the arrest with videos, which he said were helpful in reviewing the case.

The Washington State Patrol is reminding drivers to move over -- or at least slow down -- when approaching an emergency vehicle that’s stopped with its lights flashing. The Patrol will begin a three-day crackdown Tuesday on drivers who don’t give troopers some space.

The Washington State Patrol is recruiting. But in this case it’s not for troopers. It’s for military veterans who applied to be troopers and weren’t hired.

Consultants leading a study on why dozens of troopers have recently left the Washington State Patrol warned Thursday that the agency is in “dire straits.”

Ross Reynolds interviews best selling Northwest writer Bob Dugoni about his  new crime novel, "Her Final Breath," the second in his series focusing on Seattle detective Tracy Crosswhite. Dugoni used two local police officers to help get the facts of police procedure right: Seattle detective Jennifer Southworth, who was in part the inspiration for the Tracy Crosswhite character, and  King County Sheriff's department detective Scott Tompkins.

After the mass shooting in Roseburg, Ore., last week, the national media gave a lot of attention to the fact that the local sheriff, John Hanlin, is an ardent supporter of gun rights. He'd written a letter to Vice President Joe Biden shortly after the Dec. 14, 2012, massacre of schoolchildren at Sandy Hook Elementary in Newtown, Conn., saying gun control was not the answer. In the letter, Hanlin pledged not to enforce gun regulations he believed to be unconstitutional.

What wasn't widely reported was how common views like Hanlin's have become in law enforcement.
