Yes. Police officers in Illinois are allowed to carry their weapons off duty anywhere within the State.
Unless you have some very specific prohibition (like a commercial airplane), a police officer is permitted to carry a weapon in almost any place. There is most likely no bar to the officer being armed in a school.
simple answer.....YES. It hasn't always been like that but in the last 10 or 20 years we have been deputized. Added 7/14/13 - depends on who you ask. Consider the case of Moore v. Trent No. 09 C 1712. and Zurek v. ILETSB, where the Court and the Illinois Law Enforcement Trainin and Standards Board (ILETSB) found that CO's are not the same as police officers for participation in the Illinois Retired Officer Concealed Carry (IROCC) Program.
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.
It's a concealed weapon. Plain and simple. The evidence lockers of many, many police stations are full of them. If you have it in your hand, you are, in point of fact, carrying a concealed weapon. Be smart about this one.
In the absence of a female officer, and to ensure his own safety, he may 'frisk' via an outer clothing pat-down (not underneath clothing - unles he discovers something in the pat-down) and definitely not a strip, or body cavity search. Further, he may restrain her hands in such a way that she poses no threat of injury or bodily harm to him in the event she should have a weapon concealed somewhere on her body that he may not find.
you get hung
Yes. Asked a kcmo police officer. Officer hall.
Because police agencies each have their own policies, there is no specific law that covers all police officers in the state of Illinois. The general rule seems to be that a female is as able to use a concealed weapon against an officer as a male and, even if a female officer is not available, the female suspect must be searched. A male officer searching a female suspect should have a witness to the search. Any officer is to search the person before putting them in the police car for safety reasons. a male officer can search a female and a female officer is allowed to search a male, no matter what. See the related link for information on this subject or you can visit the Illinois ACLU website for information specific to Illinois.
An active duty, full-time police officer in any state can carry a concealed weapon in any other state.
A police officer is a police officer 24/7/365, whether they on or off duty, or whether they're on vacation or not. every police officer has an on duty and off duty gun, they can only carry their off duty guns, and can only use it if he/she or someone else is in danger.
no they are no longer a sworn officer
Yes, a police officer undergoes a physical bootcamp before joining their department. The bootcamp helps trains them on how to move with a weapon.
Any person with a gun has the potential to be a threat to a police officer. A suicidal person with a gun in their hand is a significant threat. If the gun is pointed at the officer, he would be justified in trying to stop the imminent threat. If the gun is not pointed at the officer, the officer should have his weapon at the ready, and take cover.
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.
yes they can kill whothey want so be affraid
If you mean a federal concealed weapons permit, there is no such thing. If you are a police officer or retired police officer, you can carry under federal law HR218, but other than that, you're out of luck.
