Senator Responds to Removal of Public Safety Equipment

In response to the Defense Logistics Agency removing traced armored vehicles from the Calhoun County Sheriff’s office last week… Senator Richard Shelby wrote a letter to President Barack Obama expressing his disappointment. Here’s a portion of what Shelby wrote yesterday:

In the aftermath of the attack in Paris and surge of terrorist violence across the world, I ask that you revisit the misguided and dangerous policy on surplus military equipment. Our citizens need their national leaders to place the safety of our communities and those who protect them above criminals, terrorists, and politics. Congress will surely review and respond to these misguided policies in 2016.”
