  • Off Duty Carry for Deputies

    My Sheriff is looking into allowing us to carry off duty. We are sworn deputies that only work in corrections. We are allowed to carry to and from work and have arrest powers on county property. I would like to hear from some other Illinois agencies that have off duty carry for Sworn Correctional Officers and any case law or Illinois Law that allows their department to do this.

    From what you've stated above, you're already covered to carry off duty under HB218 The Law Enforcement Officer's Safety Act of 2004.
    This is a Federal Law, so there's really no need to search any further if what you stated above is accurate.
    Be sure you're right, then go ahead

      Yes, that bill just may cover him but does his Policy Manual say so? If the manual doesn't read that way his rear will be flapping in the wind. Every one of our deputies whether patrol, corrections or court security are ALL sworn officers and have the permission to carry O/D once they have passed the 40.

        The Sheriff is going to modify the policy once he makes sure it is legal for him to do so.

          Once the policy is modified in favor of off duty carry, it should not be a problem to carry. However, you may want to make sure as to what else that entails. For BOP employees qualified to carry off duty, we carry but not in an official capacity other than to carry. Everything else is subject to the laws of the State that we are in at the time we are carrying as to use of what we are carrying.

              Sorry, it sounded as though the accual policies were still up in the air. I was just clarifying.
