Aguila Blanca and Punisher summed it up very well. Sheriff Departments all over the country took that free federal money, formed SWAT teams and bought all kinds of neat to have stuff. When the free federal money goes away the sheriffs office lays off deputies.

Aguila Blanca is spot on in regards to the School Resource Officers. Comanche county, OK had so much free federal money for SROs that the program turned into a fraudulent ghost employee scam. Several people ended up in prison.

Lawton_

Close to twenty former Lawton police officers, Comanche County Sheriff's Deputies, and Lawton Public Schools' Deputy Superintendent were convicted of stealing almost half-a-million dollars of taxpayer money over a three to four year period in a ghost employee scheme that became public in the summer of 2005.

Out of the roughly $500,000 owed, the guilty parties have repaid about $133,000 - a little more than 27% - collected in less than three years. While some have paid a lot, others have paid very little, and one person has yet to pay a dime.
