VENTSday: Police Equipment + Earthquake Preparedness

Aug 27, 2014


Should local police departments be equipped with military-grade weapons and vehicles?  How about body cameras? 

That's one discussion topic for this week's VENTSday. 

The other is earthquake preparedness, and how prepared you feel you are. 

We do not schedule guests for Wednesday at 8:30, because that's the time for VENTSday, your chance to vent (politely, please) on a pair of topics in the news. 

We bring the topics, you bring the opinions. 

It's VENTSday on The Jefferson Exchange, and you participate by calling 1-800-838-3760 or 541-552-6782 or emailing

This week's questions, in summary:

  • What's appropriate gear for a police department/what's off limits?
  • Are you and your family/your town ready for a big earthquake?
