Czech police officers have been issued hollow-point bullets, the news website idnes.cz reported on Thursday. This type of ammunition was previously used only by an emergency response team but has been issued to all police officers; a spokeswoman for the national police command said that while more devastating for the target, hollow-point ammunition was safer as it is remains inside the target and does not put others at risk. It is also more effective in shooting tires in pursuits of vehicles, according to the police.
