  • What do you carry on "The Job"?

    I thought this might be a pretty good thread because there are so many of us from all different aspects of the Security Profession. Just list the stuff you carry in your pockets, duty belt, in the trunk of the car ect. Here's mine.

    Blazer:
    -Two notebooks, small enough to fit in pocket
    -Plastic bag, to put the notebook in if I get blood or chemicals on it
    -1 black pen
    -Cell phone (in right pocket), speed dial #1 set for 911
    -Spare batteries (in left pocket), always carry spares for a Surefire

    Belt (no duty belt, just a dress belt):
    -Radio
    -Surefire N2 in a hardened plastic V70 holster (this thing rocks, you can put the light in handle first or head first)
    -My keys (personal) attached to a 6 in aluminum keystick (there is a proper name for this, but if asked, I just say its my keychain)
    -Door Keycard with security lisence in the plastic holder
    -Have a med. glove holder, but since I don't have gloves to put in there I don't wear it (used mine a while ago, job doesn't provide any) I still need to order some from Galls


    Trouser Pocket:
    -Spare black pen
    -Identification (DL)

    About my job, I work at an unarmed sight, manning the gate and cameras and doing "nightwatchman" type patrols. Pretty boring, but the account is one of the highest starting pays in my area. Happy posting!

            The .25ACP? With a CCW I can carry concealed any type/size pistol or revolver that is legally owned. We can openly carry without restrictions as to type/size also.

            Also, the multi-tool is a Schrade and the folder is a Gerber. Sorry, Iwas half asleep during the last post.

              Interesting. Florida folks can't carry on their CCW, because they're legally responsible for protecting others, not just themselves. The Florida CCW is for "self-protection," according to DOACS/Div. Licensing, and therefore they must regulate the type of weapon and manner of carry that security officers use, since they are to protect others.

              Take this, for example:
              You are on duty, in uniform. You have a holstered firearm in plain sight.

              Put on a rain-coat, on duty, you must pull the gun through to keep it "securely encased in plain sight" to comply with the letter of the law.

              Go off work, you must trunk your weapon as your not authorized to carry it to and from work. However, if you have a valid CCW, you may wear an overcoat that obscures your work uniform and weapon. You are now a private citizen carrying a concealed weapon, not a security officer openly carrying.

              Due note, of course, open carry is illegal in Florida. Only LEOs and Security Officers may do it.

                  In WV the state code states that for plain clothes you must abide by all state CCW regulations which means if you have a CCW you can carry.

                  Also our CCW is for the protection of self and others as well as property. Also we do not have to retreat for any reason. In other words if some idiot decides to B&E you can stand your ground. ID, aim, breath, squeeze...repeat as needed until situation resolved.

                  We can even carry a shotgun, rifle or carbine if wanted or needed. Semi of course unless you have the Class 3 stamp. Believe it or not I would have a bigger problem with DNR than PD.

                    We're lucky in that the DNR rule requiring any weapon to be unloaded and stored securely in a running vehicle specifically does not apply to "licensed private police, private security, and private guard persons."

                    PD just has to sign your ATF Form 4. I could see DNR going insane over having a Class 3 weapon. (That's not a hunting weapon.) "We're not hunting animals."

                        That should be SOP anyhow (Yes, I know you were making a point, but a guy I work with refuses to do that. Ever try getting your weapon out from under a full-length raincoat? Not easy).

                              Yes, I have. You end up looking like Bat Masterson. My raincoat didn't have pull through pockets long enough to stick the handle of my revolver out.

                              Sufficiet to say, the raincoats I'm looking at have weapon vents.
