    3 local hospitals in the city where I live carry tasers, cuffs, pepper gel and 2 of them carry ASPS, but only 1 of them have their officers' sworn with police powers.

    Here's the hospital's in Washington, DC and what they are carrying:

    Washington Hospital Center Protective Services - .38 revolver, ASP, MarkIII OC
    Childrens National Medical Center Security - ASP, MarkIII OC
    DC Veterans Administration Hospital Police - Berretta 9mm, ASP, MarkIII OC
    Howard University Hospital Police - .38 revolver, ASP, MarkIII OC
    George Washington University Hospital Police - .38 revolver only (limited arming)
    Georgetown University Hospital Protective Services - Monadnock Expandable Baton, MarkIII OC
    Providence Hospital Security - .38 Revolver, ASP, MarkIII OC
    Hadley Memorial Hospital Security - NOTHING
    Specialty Hospital of Washington Security - NOTHING
    Greater Southeast Community Hospital Security - NOTHING
    DC General Hospital Medical Campus (PSD Police) - GLOCK17 9mm, ASP, MarkIV OC

    There are no tasers permitted for ANYONE (police or security) at this time in DC. All the armed officers are DC Special Police Officer's, who hold police commissions with limited arrest powers from the city. All the armed officers are carrying .38 revolvers with the exception of the two government operated facilities, who are using a combination of regular police officers (carrying 9mm as primary duty weapon) and contracted special police officer's (carrying .38 revolver as duty weapon) from various security companies.

    The more and more I look at it, it seems nothing will change. The Police's reason for only wanting us to carry .38s... "That way we can determine who did the shooting if security and police are present at the scene at the same time"

    I've worked at a couple hospitals here in the Northeast. The one I work at now is considerably bigger than the one I left, and is located a much larger city. However, we are armed with handcuffs and pepper spray. No handguns at all. Not yet at least.

    All of the hospitals at my university have in-house security (not affiliated with campus security or university police). The security officers carry OC, cuffs, batons, and 9mm pistols and are sworn as special police officers.

    I'm just trying to gather some rough stats incase a change with the power transfer of the STLMPD desolves the Board of Police Comissioners, thus maybe changes the rules for weapons.

    Currently INOVA carries no weapons.
    I only hope that one day we will be able to carry mace or even an ASP....
