      Not a peace officer out-of-state

      Just remember that you are a private citizen once you leave your homestate. Most states have given peace officers authority statewide, irrespective of their department, but some department rules prohibit this further. Just because we now have the privelege of carrying a gun in other states (USC 926B), doesn't mean that we have any additional authority other than a private person's arrest. Meaning the civil liabilities are on YOU.

        we have guys that go to missouri for some gang thing. they work for the police departments there, but are paid by our department. i don't remember the department, but they don't have near enough people to work the event. with HR218, our guys can go up there and lend a hand.

          When I was on the Mounted Unit, we were hired in the summer to work crowd control at a rather large outside concert venue in a small town south of us. We were sworn as special police officers for the town, although we wore our regular badges & uniforms.

            My state certifies you for statewide authority. Only one academy system, so the cities, counties, universities, state patrol, etc all use the same training academy. Corrections academy is the same way, and it works for jails, prisons, probation & parole, etc.

              Where I work, we have concurrent jursidiction as the airport is split, 2 counties meet in the center so we enforce both county laws, state laws, faa laws and our own airport laws. It's Kind of cool but it can be a pain in the rear carrying 2 different citation books!

                  IN Ireland we have country wide powers on or off duty. Doesnt matter what city or county, a cop is a cop is a cop. Handy being in a small country with only one police force.

                  We are required to carry our official notebooks and badges at all times and intervene in any breaches of the law where there is a threat to life or property.

                  Of course we dont carry the notebooks just the badge in the back pocket (Bouncers might ask you for ID but only the once). We are also not allowed to carry any personal protection tools off-duty but then again all we have is a foot long wooden baton and Heiton loose cuffs anyway so no real loss. Armed units are permitted to bring their guns home as they are personal issue for life not signed in or out. However they can only carry them off duty on their way to and from the station, not out shopping.

                    Hey there,

                    I'm a former member of the Garda Siochana, I left in 1994. Things were a bit different in my day, if I recall correctly.

                    We were authorized to carry our batons and cuffs when off-duty, but I didn't know anybody who did. Dunno where we were supposed to put it !!!??? The members with personal issue firearms could carry them whenever they wanted, not just to and from work. I knew some DDU folks who never went anywhere without them.

                    Have they changed the Garda Code to reflect these new rules? Why did they chasnge these rules? Was there an "incident"? What other drastic changes have happened since I left !!!????

                    Later.
                    Christ, you know it ain't easy...

                      You could be right about the guns but I know there was a case where a DDU man left his gun at home, jumped into a shower and his neighbour used it too shoot his wife so maybe it has changed since you were around or maybe Im just wrong.

                      As for cuffs and batons, cant carry the baton but you probable can carry cuffs. I know I do going to court on days off and that but thats not shopping.

                      Would be worried about someone that carries that **** shopping and to the cinema/pub.

                      I know a guy in Store that has his own siren and stops people off duty, the word life comes to mind

                      There is a new code coming out in the next year or two which is supposedly a full update instead of the 20 year old thing we have now with a couple of thousand HQ circulars sticking out.

                      BTW, did you know you dont even get a full code in the college anymore? thats how cheap the bastards have become.

                        Does Ireland have any federal law enforcement agency authorized to carry firearms on and off duty?

                          Nope

                          Nope. The Gardai are the start and finish of law enforcement in Ireland. We look after petty local crime and federal as you would call it, anti-terrorism, emergency reponse, national security, etc. We are the local cops, CIA, FBI, NSI and secret service.

                          Its much easier this way but remember were are a hell lof a lot smaller than you guys and our populatio is only 5 million. Putting our system into practice in the states would be a logistical disaster. We also dont have different laws depending on the state.

                                In NY, we have 4 different types of 'crime', violations and infractions, which are considered non-crimes and misdemeanors and felonies, which are considered crimes. All police officers are allowed to arrest anyone statewide for misdemeanors and felonies, but must be in their geographical area of employment for a non-criminal/violation arrest. On top of that, we have peace officers, whose responsibilities are roles are different from a police officer.
