One small-town Minnesota school district is taking a unique approach to keeping students safe: The police are moving in. In Jordan, south of Minneapolis, officials looking at school security after the massacre at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Connecticut decided the police would set up satellite offices in public schools. Officers will conduct some of their daily work from the schools, including taking calls and filling out paperwork, while still going out into the community to patrol or respond to emergencies.
Radley Balko and Carlos Miller interviewed on NPR's Talk of the Nation about recording the police.

A police sergeant in Santa Fe, New Mexico is in a bad situation after a video caught him masturbating while he was on duty.
