Building a DM program for LE Agency, looking for advice/guidance

I'm working on building a Designated Marksman program for my agency. We are a rural Sheriff's Office in Kansas. I've spoke to admin briefly about the topic but for the most part they are long removed from the road and don't agree on the need, so I'm fighting an up hill battle. Speaking to some of my partners the primary need's we've observed are as follows; We regularly serve high risk/narcotics warrants in our rural areas and frequently encounter driveway's in excess of 200 yards long.

Our state certifying entity limits the power of the optics we can use, specifically anything above (I believe) 4x requires an actual sniper school and slot. So, our patrol guys can run up to a 4x or variable etc without an issue.

So having been in your position for the last eight years and having similar working environment, I was going down the same road you are; however I changed roads last year. I submitted a policy and course of fire to allow the carrying of rangemaster approved bolt and semi rifles with scopes about 4 years ago. It went nowhere. So after carefully reviewing policy, I noted nothing prohibited scoping patrol rifles. Ergo, now I have .308 and 5.56 patrol rifles in my unit; the 5.56 carries a 1-4,...

Pointblank I'd say its honestly a bit of both. We have about 14 commissioned Deputies. I'd say about half of us are very capable, take our training seriously, and work to improve. The other half are Rods or admin that shoot their annual qual and go home. Manpower is always an issue for us. A scoped option has just been a bug in the back of several of our heads for a while. We regulary train at 150-200 and can get our hits. A lot of it is a man power/skill issue. But I think a lot of us would...

FWIW, My team rolls with 4 snipers max. It was my proposition to train up a handful of DM's that would cross-train with snipers quarterly. My objective was to: 1) Have a feeder system for prospective snipers 2) Have additional perimeter support to relieve snipers for other tasks if necessary 3) Act as spotters/security if 4 sniper positions were required so snipers wouldn't have to deploy alone. Ultimately, the project fizzled. One good thing to come out of it was shedding the light on the...

That's something that makes no sense to me as long as there's a 1X on the low end.

LE is a strange and mystifying realm sometimes. I "think" the issue here is long range firepower is something we don't do a lot of. Some places are lucky to shoot patrol rifles past 100yrds. My agency allows us up to 200yrds just to get a feel for what it's like but we zero and qualify from 100yrds in. From a purely strategic point of view, having something like a 1-6 or 1-8 on a patrol rifle just for the intel gathering purposes would be awesome. The issue then becomes precision shooting.
