    Since I lived along the Mexican Border most of my life, "Plant Quarantine" worked - no one wanted to hear any details.

    And, I used to arrest a lot of dopers!

    The main reason seasoned officers don't tell Joe Smoe at a party what they do for a living, is they get tired of hearing every complaint and story that you've heard at every party you've gone to since you joined the department. You want to leave the job at the door sometime, and not deal with the gripes and complaints everywhere you go.

    If I am comfortable, I tell people what I do. But, if I dont know them, or it does not feel right, I tell people I run a bar. I never have my badge in my wallet, and I never 'badge up' off duty. 1, my dept will not support me if things go pear shaped. 2, in Australia, we do not have off duty weapons, and while at work I have my Glock, my oc spray, my whacking stick, and most importantly, my portable radio. Off duty all you have is you.

    I tell people I'm on the KCPD BDRT (baby daddy removal team). In reality, I try not to talk to strangers when not at work.

    I don't carry my badge off duty, it means nothing, what holds weight is the official ID card in my wallet that identifies me as a Deputy Sheriff and my TCLEOSE card.

    I tell people I work in Public Relations specializing in damage control.

    I always carry my badge, l/e ID, and a gun off duty the majority of the time. Then again I also work in a high crime area and live smack in the middle of it. I arrested a few of my neighbors a few doors down. I think it is better for your own safety to not carry one without the other.

    Whenever people ask what I do for a living I just tell them I work for the county. They usually assume that means im in law enforcement, take a hint and let it go, or keep asking questions.

    The only reason I carry my badge off duty when armed is because I was told to.

Most of the time my badge is on my belt, under my shirt.......lotta good that does. If a uniformed officer approaches you from one angle he can't see your badge at, you're now the guy w/ the gun or party armed or active shooter. I guess the only solution is not to shoot anyone off duty and hide....... There has to be some solution to this though, other than carrying 5 badges on you, hanging off your neck in front and back etc..... I'd be scared to death if I were shooting back at an active shooter in the mall in plain clothes.
    Best advice I can give you if you have to do it is BE AWARE OF YOUR SURROUNDINGS. Give loud verbal commands and consistently scan in every direction watching if anyone is approaching you. As the sirens/lights get closer, PUT THAT GUN AWAY, get down on one knee and keep your hands visible. Remember, you do just as good by being a witness than possibly getting involved and getting shot.
