    Hey fellow investigators. Anyone carry as much crap as I do?

          I've stopped carrying the speed-loader for the BUG, and seldom carry two knives anymore. It easy to carry everything since I have to wear a sport coat (so, no, crocs will just not do). My favorite is the Duluth Trading presentation jacket with 13 pockets. We don't have partners, so out of the office we're on our own.

            Sometimes I remember my firearm.
            Seems like it's all phone, internet, and desk lately.

              On my belt is my sidearm (Glock 22 w/ Streamlight TLR1), 2 mags, hinged cuffs and my badge. I'm lucky enough to be able to wear business casual cargo pants at work (made by Wrangler, great pants and cheap!), so I carry my county phone in one cargo pocket, my personal phone and Kershaw knife in the other. Car keys/business cards/flash drives/note pads/pen/recorder etc, go in the normal pockets along with wallet and ID.

              When I'm out of the office, I also carry my Taser, radio, 2 more pair of handcuffs and 2 rifle mags in my outer vest carrier.

              I almost think I carried less crap when I was in uniform.....

                    But you always had Monty on speed dial for when you really needed help
                    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

                      In my Homicide days I carried a Glock 27, badge w/belt holder, radio, pen, wallet, cell phone, and note pad on my person, any other gear that was needed (gloves, flashlight, shoe covers, digital camera, evidence bags, etc) was kept in the vehicle. No cargo pants, polo shirts or nylon belts (which is pretty much the auto theft/gang task force uniform of the day) dress shirt, slacks, dress shoes, belt, conservative tie, and sunglasses. If I had court, dark suit in the winter months and khaki slacks with a linen blazer in the summer.

                          My agency is still too small for specialized investigative units. I can go from an unattended death to a residential burg then a smashed mailbox. If I could specialize I would adjust the carry items to suit.

                          We have a great Crime Scene/Lab unit, so I don't collect my own evidence but I am there as its collected and documented.

                            Always: firearm w/light, spare magazine, knife, cuffs, flashlight, phone, keys, pen(s), badge around neck and credentials.
                            Sometimes/often: backup firearm, second spare magazine, small gunshot wound kit, multitool, second knife, radio, notebook(s).
                            Note: The sometimes/often items are not a package - they are rotated in as necessary.
                            And then there is the crap in the vehicle.... lots of it.

                              Its a good thing I drive a pickup truck with a hard bed cover. I am also my agency's fire investigator and we have a lot of mountainous terrain which brings foul weather often.
