  • Palm Beach S.O.

    I have noticed that most deputies from the Palm Beach area where their duty gear in a similar fashion to the Hindi Duty Belt Safety System (cuffs and oc in front of weapon). Is this a requirement for your department?

    I don't know if it is a department requirement, but the duty belt set-up is explained in the academy and most keep it similar once out on the streets.

      We were taught and had to wear our handcuff case in front of the fake-firearm on the gear belts we wore during the academy.

      Most of the instructors taught us that it's a good idea to keep the cuffs in the front, and never in the rear on your butt because you have to reach for them, and cuffs are something you want quick access to.

        In my academy back in 2000 (Miami) we were taught week-hand cuffing with one pair of cuffs located in the back week-side of the duty belt. Where I am at now we were taught strong-hand cuffing with one set in front strong-side and one set in back of the strong-side.

          I agree, it is a good idea to have them in the front so that you dont have to reach and that they are reachable with either hand
