Police Chief trains officers in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu

We need more Chiefs like this:

"LUDLOW, Ky. -- Ludlow Police Chief Scott Smith said most law enforcement mistakes can be boiled down to a lack of training. He's on a mission to change that.

Smith opened a gym where he offers free martial arts classes to officers in disciplines like Brazilian jiu-jitsu. He said those are the skills that officers need to ensure they can control suspects without shooting them.

"If you're going to the range twice a year, then you probably should be training combatives twice a year," he said."
