Findlay Police Chief Greg Horne is expanding the department's use of force policy by allowing officers to carry AR-15 semiautomatic rifles to keep in police vehicles. Chief Horne said the revision is due to cutbacks in the force and a tight budget, adding that the AR-15s will protect the force without adding costs according to the Courier. Police officers will purchase their own weapons at a cost of about $900 each. Horne said the AR-15s are light and recoil less than other rifles and unleash an accurate and powerful shot.
