EUREKA, Ill. — Eureka will consider a proposal to allow police to carry their own weapons, rather than the city-issued Glock .40-caliber guns they have been provided for more than a decade.

Police Chief Eric Luckey said the policy would be modeled after one in Peoria, but would not require that even off-duty officers always carry a weapon. The public safety committee will consider the idea.
