  • Police belt for personal use, allowed or not ?

    Hi guys,
    In a surplus shop I found a belt which I think is an official police belt.
    Is it allowed to wear this belt for personal use or not, or is this considered to be an official part of the uniform ??
    I am working as an IT guy and I am planning to wear this belt to carry my personal items (mini flashlight, pocket knife, multitool, keys, cellphone etc.). Seems to be a solution to get rid of stuff in my pockets....and I need those items with me all the time.
    Is this OK or not ?
    And what is the correct way to wear this belt ? The guy in the shop told me to get a velcro belt under it and to get six loops with snaps so I could simply wear it over my pants belt....seems to work for me....is this the way how the belt is normally worn? Since it doesn't fit in my belt loops....
    Below a photo of my belt.
    Thanks for your advice !

      When I did network infrastructure and administration I just wore a regular 1 inch leather belt with a tool pouch. Amazon has a decent selection to choose from...

        Polo + BDUs + Duty Belt = people might mistake you for popo/security, which could be bad news.

The difference, though, is that the sheepdog must not, cannot and will not ever harm the sheep. Any sheepdog who intentionally harms the lowliest little lamb will be punished and removed.

          Getting shot hurts! Don't under estimate the power of live ammo. A .22LR can kill you! I personally feel that it's best to avoid being shot by any caliber. Your vest may stop the bullet, but you'll still get a nice bruise or other injury to remember the experience.

                Just need a decent wide belt to carry my items. Was considering one of those nylon tool belts also, but I am not working at a construction site

                  If you rooted through my garbage pail abut a year ago you could have had mine for nothing.

                    Nothing you stated you carry requires that kind of belt.

                    It's overkill and more weight around your waist which in time is not a good thing.

                    Just get pouches for all your stuff that you can put through a normal sized belt.

                    What are other folks in the "industry" doing....I'm guessing they aren't running around with thick and heavy gun belts.

                      Listen to me

                      No and NO and NO. You will never get laid man. Just No, don't do it.

                      There are no stupid questions, but there sure are a lot of inquisitive idiots.

                        It is perfectly lawful to wear this type of belt. It will make you look like a complete tool, but it is legal.

                          If you're going to do it right, you better order the Dee belt and wear it with your Sam Browne.

                            You're not working as an officer either but you want to wear that belt. Go figure. Go on over to the Big Bang Theory store and get a nice Batman buckle to go on it too.

                              Well, it IS intended as a tool belt.

                              Legal here, but dumb.
