    I bet no one thought the hallways of a particular high school in Littleton Colorado were that dangerous on April 19, 1999

I'd be damned if they say I can't go strapped while walking the street or going shopping.
    Is it really that dangerous where you live?

    But by law they are covered, just not by dept policy. So I know Im still a little ignorant in this new law... I think a lot of us are... but I would think with the new law LEOs could carry off duty and if they were caught doing it by their LEA, they could only be effected to the point of termination, not arrest. I dont think Dept. Policy can remove a legal granting can it?
    The law is negated if a PD has a contradictory policy. A PD may enact a policy that is more stringent than the law. Yes, the officer could be arrested.

    Only thing is i dont agree with this law at all. If he is a officer and certified i dont belive that boston should tell him he can only carry on duty.

    President Bush signed into law the National Law Enforcement Officer Safety Act. It is suppose to allow officers to carry off deuty in all 50 states. However I think when the law was passed it didnt include reserve officers. If you look into the case history of not allowing officers to carry you will find many got killed because of it and could not protect his and his family. People in government such as ted kennedy were against the law and bush signing it into law. Kennedy stated im afraid of retired cops carrying sniper rifles and hand granades. With such a law crime will be lower homeland security will be even better. And also with CCW Laws make the same happen. You take away the good persons right to carry it and the bad people have it then no one should complain when every violent crime goes up.

    Stay Safe All

  • Police Confiscate SPO's Badge and Gun After Off Duty Chase

    Boston, MA:
    O'Brien Gomez, 24, an armed security guard employed by Alliance Detective and Security and licensed as a special police officer by the Boston Police Department had his badge and gun confiscated after police responded to a call about a man being chased by a man with a gun. Police pulled over Gomez, who was chasing a suspect he believed broke into his car in his personal vehicle while armed. The law there states that SPO's may only be armed while on duty.
