  • Carry off duty?

    How many of you are allowed to carry off duty by your department or carry under conceal weapons permit?

    My Department does not allow, so would have to carry by permit.

    We are allowed to carry since ALL are sworn deputy sheriffs. This includes patrol, Corrections, Court Security, and Animal Control for example.

        We take the oath of office at graduation (or did when I went to the academy), but in order to carry off duty we have to get a handgun license (we hire 18 year olds). There are a lot of my coworkers that I would not want to see with a weapon on or off duty.

          We aren't sworn peace officers, but in Vermont you don't even need a concealed weapon permit (scary huh?). I've been thinking about picking a sidearm for off duty, any suggestions?

              Sworn Deputy, yes I carry off-duty.

                I cannot carry on my correctional officer status as state correctional officers are not considered law enforcement in IN. I am allowed to carry on my credentials of being a reserve police officer.

                    Iowa-
                    NO we are not LEO's in IOwa
                    Many officers have ccw permits but here it is totally up to the county sheriff where you live if he wants to give you a permit. One of our weapons instructors lives in a county where the sheriff refuses to give out permits.
                    I don't carry myself. I could get a permit if I wanted one based on my prior LEO status but choose not to.

                    Unfortunately a few of them live in a neghboing county where the sheriff gives them out like candy....especially if they work in corrections!
                    Since some people need to be told by notes in crayon .......Don't PM me with without prior permission. If you can't discuss the situation in the open forum ----it must not be that important

                      Scary? No.

                      Not to hijack, but VT not only has the least restrictive gun laws in the us, we also happen to be the 2nd lowest state with violent crimes (I believe Maine has us beat, but only because no one actually lives there).

                      I always carry everywhere I go when I'm not in the facility. It's not so much because I'm afraid of running into a former inmate on the streets, but because I know that to become an inmate you must commit a crime first. I don't want to be the person that they commit said crime on to become an inmate.

                            i thought it was a little weird, but you do make a valid point.

                              Yes, we carry on our badge. We are sworn Law Enforcement Officers here in Miami-Dade. And we fall under LEOSA (HR 218).
