Default Survey - Assistance Requested

I'm not sure if this is the correct location to post this request. I am trying to poll which ACS are issued with a Baton or OC Spray or Firearm. It would be great if you could advise which City and/or State your from. Thanks much.

Asp (Bite Stick) and Pepper Spray here in Santa Clara County. To carry both of those we have to go through training by a security agency and carry a Guard Card.

Issued both. Must take defensive tactics training every year, as well as firearms qualifications.

Here in Spartanburg SC:

Issued with both ASP (Bitestick... yeah, right) and Pepper Spray. Both following same training as our Police units (including being sprayed with the pepper spay).

City ACO's do not carry firearms, but County ACO's do. They have to go through same qualification as County Mounties.

Default stuff carried on duty belts

In KY @ my dept I carry a Asp,Pepper Spray,Taser, etc but no firearm

In Tn , we carry full duty gear. Asp,pepper spray( Freeze), Firearm ( I provide my own) , and everything.


It seems to really vary by dept and training you are offered.

Here in Sac Co. we carry Asp Batons (after cert. training) and after training and after PC 832(with firearms) we can carry a shotgun for "dispatching wildlife".

Prior to baton training all we had was a catchpole.
