  • MN cop, live in WI

    I'm curious where I can find WI off-duty carry laws. I'm a MN cop who lives in WI, I'm wondering if I am able to carry in WI and what I need to do.

    HR 213 is a bill that was passed a few years back that allows all active law enforcement officers to carry off-duty anywhere in the U.S. As long as you carry your badge and dept ID you should not have problem anywhere. I live in southeastern WI and continuely carry off-duty when I go to IL (ie Chicago).

      Its HR218...and provided you're a full time LEO NOT part time, you're good to go. However, i suggest you read the bill just to be clear on it. I'd check with MN POST, they've probably written a primer on the bill that would guide you in the right direction.
      Nobody ever wants to have to fight, but its a darn good idea for someone to know how.

          Incorrect part time or full time may carry anywhere in the country (some exceptions like court houses and federal property) If you are a police officer that has statutory police power then you qualify.

            If you are worried about getting arrested, contact the Sheriff, Police Chief or District Attorney in the county / city in which you live and get a take from them. As I understand it, Wisconsin has not adopted HR218 provisions or it's left up the individual county...it's been awhile since I've read up on this. I'll do some research and if it's any different, I'll re-post.

            The specific WI Statute is 941.23

            The link below will help you research the specific language, but the underlying issue would be are you a peace officer in the eyes of Wisconsin law as you are a MN Peace Officer? Or you could just get a part-time cop job in Wisconsin and that would resolve it -

              Although Wisconsin fought implementation of HR218, it doesn't have a choice but to honor its provisions. The only part of HR218 it hasn't adopted have to do with retired concealed carry. That they've pushed off on individual agencies to work out.

              The specific WI Statute is 941.23

              The link below will help you research the specific language, but the underlying issue would be are you a peace officer in the eyes of Wisconsin law as you are a MN Peace Officer?
              No. A MN peace officer is not covered by the language of WS 941.23. In fact, it has been (pre-HR218 days) interpreted it to mean that even ON-DUTY out-of-state officers cannot carry concealed in Wisconsin.

              You can carry you side-arm off duty in Wisconsin under HR218 provisions if: your agency allows for off duty carry, you have proper identification, are not subject to any active disciplinary issues, and are current with qualification standards for your department. Off duty arrest powers would be that of any regular citizen, not as an officer.

                SRT: Thanks for bringing me up to speed. I guess I never really worried about the CCW laws as much as I went by better judged by 12 than carried by 6.

                Stay safe!
