Buckeye is either at the forefront of homeland-security readiness or under the spell of private-security consultants promising “hands-on” anti-terrorism training in a war zone. The town has spent $25,500 to send employees to Israel to train in anti-terrorism tactics, even as public-safety departments several times its size are keeping training in-house and relying on the state’s counterterrorism center to keep officers prepared. Buckeye officials say the money is an investment in its efforts to secure vulnerable infrastructure as the southwest Valley town of roughly 40,000, known for dairy farms and sprawling housing developments, grows about tenfold by 2030.
