Any law enforcement officer can carry a weapon off duty. Some departments even require officers to carry weapons off duty.
Why would they? A policemen would need a heavier duty blade-a switch blade simply would not suffice.
Sworn Illinois Police Officers are authorized by state statute to carry their weapon 24/7. In fact, many departments require that officers (while within their jurisdiction) carry their weapon and identification even while off-duty. Often, however, it becomes a matter of preferrence by the officer whether to carry off-duty or not.
An active duty, full-time police officer in any state can carry a concealed weapon in any other state.
The answer depends on department policy, but generally speaking any police officer is entitled to carry a weapon off duty.
Yes, but you must carry a weapon of the same "type" as what you qualify with at your dept. I qualify with a .38 revolver, thus I carry a 2" snub nose revolver off duty.
No we are not covered by either law therefore we are not allowed to carry off duty except 1 hour before and after shift. However firearms are not allowed on state property- we never carry a weapon off duty.
