    Yes, the answer is yes undoubtedly. An agency or state may try to implement legal restrictions against it, but I would bet my life savings legally the use of the word would stand up in court, even if your state restricts it. You may lose your job for violating policy, but it would legally stand.

    A prime example is California trying to make ICE stop saying this. lolol get bent California, best believe they will keep using it verbally and on patches. Moreso to that point, fairly recently Border Patrol Agents started receiving patches issued to them that say POLICE now instead of what they used to say, including in California.

    Police is the most reasonable thing to say for a law enforcement officer. A Special Agent for TIGTA (federal) isn't going to yell "SPECIAL AGENT, TAX INSPECTOR GENERAL FOR TAX ADMINISTRATION DROP THE WEAPON" on a search warrant, and any state or locality that tries to enact such archaic restrictions is not a place I would want to work or live.

    If I can reassign my gender I can reassign my professions right?

    Clearly aren’t the same questions. Similar but not the same.

    Kinda what I was wondering.

    Let's do the holster-sniffer test...

    Do you own a Crown Vic that was a retired LE vehicle or any vehicle with a lightbar, cage, or push bumper?
    Do you own a "tac vest?"
    Do you own any piece of apparel that is bullet-resistant?
    Do you have a CCW and possess a badge that says "Concealed Carry Permit Holder" or something similar?

    Here, they have powers of arrest. I don't see how this could be subject to lawsuits.

However a policy was created to remove all police markings due to I think fear of lawsuits for false misrepresentation which i doubt would happen and failure to train even though the academy they go through is comparable to a reserve police academy. Identifying as police was not something I read was forbidden to do so. Anyways, without taking into account agency policy or getting in trouble with blank agency is a law enforcement officer of a different kind “legally” allowed to identify as police ? A citizen can call themselves police and get charged for impersonating a peace officer but what if it was a parole officer who is a peace officer by state law.
    Paragraphs, dude...paragraphs...

    Also ICE seems to always identify or yell police but they don’t get in trouble for it. So I’m thinking most likely all LEO’s are allowed to identify as police since it’s the universal word for law enforcement.
