If the federal government really wants to make themselves useful, how about creating a program that accepts applications from military veterans leaving the service. They are accepted based on disciplinary record, psychological record, etc,
If they are accepted, they are put in a pool based on geographic area of where they call home, either state, county or more specific.
Counties and municipalities, if they choose, can use the program to interview/hire from the pool as their employee. If they choose to participate, they may receive some form of kickback/incentive.
You get veterans who are proficient in firearms and trained to be extremely cognizant of civilian safety and who are back home with a job.
