Georgia's senior U.S. senator has joined a new law enforcement caucus.
Republican Saxby Chambliss is one of 18 founding members of the bipartisan group. The caucus is designed to educate and inform senators about programs keeping communities safe, while advocating for policies and resources needed by law enforcement agencies.

Chambliss says that when it comes to budgetary matters "everything must be on the table. But he added that budget cuts must not endanger public safety.
