  • For C/O's that carry off duty

    So what do you guys carry while off duty? Do you carry a sidearm with cuffs or OC spray etc..? Is there anyone who feels that they do not need to carry a sidearm off duty?

      The longer I work in the Corrections field, the greater the need I feel to carry off duty. Currently I do not. NC C/O's appear to be covered by HB218 but I'm waiting on a reply from the US Attorney General's Office before I feel comfortable exercising that right.
      Under NC law C/O's must obtain a CCW. I don't mind paying for the permit, but it chaps my ***** that I have to pay to take a class that I already take every year with the DOC. I'm just stubborn that way.

            all levels of law enforcement should be allowed to carry just for the mere
            fact of self protection, their should no difference on who can carry
            whether yr police certified, correction certified.

                I carry H&K USP .45, 3 12rnd mags, shoulder holster, cuffs, ID and Badge, and a crap load of paperwork on HR 218 and proof that NC C/O's are covered by it. Also, I keep my duty belt in my vehicle, therefore I also have pepper spray.

                I also carry IWB during summer months

                    I would also want to carry off duty, if I am accepted to AZ DOC. I have been told AZ CO's are allowed to carry on the badge. I feel it would be my responsibility to protect my family anyways. I have been thinking about the new .45 from Springfield Armory:

                      Understood. I'm still wrestling with this question (whether or not to carry). I'm toying with the idea of carrying an air taser, which would negate all the legal loophole-isms.

                      Our captain the other day announced that NC DOC just officially switched over from the .357 revolver to the .40 auto.

                        Glock 30 - which is a 45 cal 10 rounds. IWB holster kind of a big gun to conceal mostly carry to and from work.

                          Can you share the paperwork on 218, I too have researched it and believe we are covered but Bowles says that the attorney general says we are not covered. I bet if ever charged wit it a lawyer would get you off.

                            Yes, AZ DOC gets the same carry authority as any sworn officer, per Title 13. I do NOT cary handcuffs or pepper spray off duty, as I do not have general arrest powers, and won't be attempting any arrests or takedowns. I, do, however, carry my authorized CZ-PO1 and two spare mags, IWB in a Bianchi M100 holster for right now.
                            AZ also allows open carry for any law abiding adult, and shall-issue CCW permits. Registering my firearm with DOC for entry onto a complex is also the ONLY registration AZ does.

                              Let's hope it stays that way, Free AZ! The CZ-PO1 is the current duty weapon from the uniformed armed dips. here in Germany. They switched over last year from the Berreta.
