LE Perspective: Dealing with citizens legally carrying a concealed weapon

Posted 05-12-2011 at 06:00 by RussP

Here is an article written by a former law enforcement officer directed at current officers about the do's and don'ts when encountering a citizen legally carrying a weapon.

I beg you, read the article carefully, maybe more than once, and focus on the entire article, not just the parts that punch your hot buttons.

Here is an excerpt:
Quote:
Education and Public Awareness
Rather than seeing CCW as a necessary evil, I would look upon it as an opportunity to work with your citizens. In talking with CCW carriers in my courses I have had numerous opportunities to get their point of view on this subject. By and large, they are very pro-law enforcement and will go out of their way to help you should the need arise. I treat them with respect and as a resource.

Law abiding citizens do not expect to be treated like a felon nor should they be. They will be angry if you prone them out, spread eagle them against a wall, or take their firearm from them without just cause. Good point to remember: A little thought and common sense goes a long way here.
Read, heed and learn. Remember, that learn thing, it's a two-way street.
