    A handfull of stuff was moved to the new sub-forums, as a sort of "this is the stuff to go here," thing. Moving every topic would be... labor intensive. Especially since Geoff is the only one who can move them, presently.

    Ok, starting from the buckle, going clockwise..

    Bianchi accumold (triple retention buckle) duty belt/inner belt
    Agency pager
    Cell phone
    Punch II MK3 OC in Bianchi holder
    *Keeper*
    (blank area where my weapon used to be... sigh)
    *Keeper*
    Leatherman tool in Leatherman holder
    Hiatt cuffs in Bianchi holder
    Rubber gloves/med kit in Bianchi holder
    Hiatt cuffs in Bianchi holder
    Stinger XT in Bianchi holder
    *Keeper*
    Radio in Bianchi holder
    Bianchi key holder
    *Keeper*
    ASP baton in ASP rotating scabbard (carried horizontally across the buckle)

    When I used to carry, that agency didn't use pagers, and I kept my cell in my pocket, so that front space on the right is where my double mag would be.. Bianchi double mag holder... my holster was the only non-Bianchi, as I have the Uncle Mike's Pro-3...
    A lot of people question my placement of the baton, as it isn't on the 'strong side'... I carry it this way for a couple reasons... 1) it doesn't interfere with drawing my weapon in any way, 2) it blocks access to the belt buckle, as more & more criminals are spending time practicing a quick 'reach & unbuckle' move rather than going straight for the gun.. and if someone WERE to try & grab the ASP all I have to do is twist my body away from them and they either A- lose their grip and balance, or B- twist with me, again losing their balance... 3) from a standard 'conversational' stance (slightly bladed, hands in front of me) I can draw AND extend the ASP in ONE quick easy movement, rather than having to reach behind me, draw, THEN extend...
    Although my DT instructor supported the whole 'strong side / weak side' mentality, he was also a big supporter of Officers situating their gear in whatever way works the best for them...

    I have a real problem with the lack of supervision you mention N.A. How can you write officer effeciency reports on personnel you rarely see? I guess I had it lucky, a experienced shift captain and a sharp car captain when first in this business.
    In order to maintain political correctness, one can assume fellow officers are encouraged to keep their mouths shut when they see a glaring problem. How can I expect backup when my backup just got murdered due to a gear problem.
    Getting industrial/commercial security experience I remember well going to an assignment and the person being relieved just shrugged his shoulders when I asked for information about the previous shift. Sometimes the log was scary, his name logging in, logging out and my name logging in. Supervision was spotty at best but that was years ago. From what I've seen and heard, not a lot has improved.
    Enjoy the day,

    Yeppers, that'd be quite a few people I relieved. "Anything happen?" "Bah." "I see." Log reads there was a toxic chemical fire, in this method:

    1845 FIRE ! ! !
    1900 PPFD said we could come back in.

    I am probably going against the grain on this one. Officer Molly Bowden?s murder was a classic example of poor to nonexistent supervision. Why? At guard mount or supervisory briefings and inspection of officers and their equipment would have discovered the problem of unwarranted slack or movement. The supervisor tells an officer to stand fast for equipment check, the officer braces himself or herself. Equipment check includes the checking of break-away tie, if part of a duty uniform and the movement of the belt up and down and moving it from one side to the other to check for excess movement or slack. Correction of the problem may include the repositioning of belt and rig keepers or the addition of one or more keepers. Training and supervision do matter.

    You know, that's a good idea, but I wonder how many LE agencies would actually take the time to do that - or if its even practical. Remember how many agencies use take home cars and going 10-8 from the driveway.

    Even LEOs are getting minimal amounts of supervision, to the point they get about as much supervision going on and off duty as post working security officers.
