"It's never easy to get ammo, but since the tragedy in Connecticut, it's become even more difficult."
Forrester says the department began experiencing problems ordering ammunition a little less than a month ago. "You'll call and they say 'sorry we're out,' or 'it's on back order,'" he said.
The shortage has forced Sgt. Forrester to rethink quarterly training for his officers saying, "We're having to be more conservative."
Typically, officers are required to fire 60 rounds with a rifle but because of ammunition backorders, they've reduced that number to 20, Forrester explained.
