NAT’L – LE – Consider weapons, equipment, tactics when training for off-duty, plainsclothes carry

SOME LAW ENFORCEMENT AGENCIES HAVEN’T PROVIDED TRAINING FOR OFFICERS ASSIGNED TO PLAINCLOTHES POSITIONS OR OFFERED OFF-DUTY TRAINING FOR OFFICERS WHILE ENCOURAGING THEM TO CARRY OFF-DUTY. IN A RECENT POLICEONE POLL, OVER 78% OF POLICE OFFICERS WHO RESPONDED ALWAYS OR USUALLY CARRY WHEN THEY’RE OFF-DUTY. THIS SAME POLL FOUND THAT NEARLY 75% REPORTED THEIR AGENCIES DO NOT PROVIDE OFF-DUTY OR PLAINCLOTHES TRAINING. WHILE I AM ALWAYS DISAPPOINTED BY THE NUMBER OF OFFICERS WHO TELL ME THEY HAVE NEVER TRAINED USING EVERYDAY CLOTHING AND CONCEALED CARRY EQUIPMENT, THIS LACK OF TRAINING ISN’T UNUSUAL. IN MORE THAN 25 YEARS AS A LAW ENFORCEMENT OFFICER, I NEVER RECEIVED DEPARTMENT-SPONSORED TRAINING FOR OFF-DUTY OR PLAINCLOTHES CARRY. DURING FIREARMS TRAINING, OFFICERS GENERALLY USE TRADITIONAL DUTY GEAR, WHICH RESULTS IN PLAINCLOTHES OFFICERS MISSING OUT ON SIGNIFICANT TRAINING OPPORTUNITIES. MANY DEPARTMENTS ALSO ENCOURAGE OFFICERS TO CARRY OFF-DUTY WITHOUT PROVIDING TRAINING ON THE USE OF SMALLER, MORE COMPACT HANDGUNS AND OTHER EQUIPMENT COMMONLY USED WHEN NOT IN UNIFORM.
