While in academy, we were taught to place each specific item a certain way. After graduation we had the option to change it, but I never did. I could find my cuffs, radio, baton, firearm, pepper, mags, ect practically in my sleep because of the repition and thought it was best not to change.

When I work civilian dressed I try to not to carry too much. Gun, 2 set of cuffs, extra magazines and that's it. I carry my radio and flashlight on my vest cover. When I'm in a covert car I carry less.

We carry to much crap on our belts, you almost need to have a bigger waist to carry all that stuff. Model 37, double mag pouch, portable radio, handcuff case, OC spray, glove pouch and keepers. Then they can carry a taser, a stick, another set of cuffs and a smaller flashlight..... Course then the cell phone and/or pager. Add the vest and boots and that is an additional 25 - 30 pounds.

NYPD Lt... A .38 Revolver, do they still make parts for those???? (just kidding) in all reality, that is one of the most reliable weapons.... Remember the S&W Model 10, you couldn't kill those... just like the Motorola MT500 Radios, you could use that for an impact weapon and then still talk on it!

The S&W Model 10M&P is like a 1959 Chevrolet pick-up truck with a 289 stright-6 engine. Get in it, start it up and take off to the dump. It ain’t sexy, but when you need to go to the dump it will get you there. There’s no A/C, and the heat is just what comes off of the engine block through a vent. But you hang on to it for when you need to go to the dump.

If you want sexy you upgrade to the S&W Model 19, the Combat Magnum. That is sexy.

I work as a licenced private security guard here in England and we are left totally defenceless as any protective equipment such as batons, O.C sprays and handcuffs are illegal to carry. For whatever reason the British Government find it "distasteful" to allow security guards more rights to defend themselves and there is no support from senior/middle managers within the profession. If private security guards are deemed responsible enough to protect federal/government property such as hospitals, prisons, courts or military bases then surely we are responsible enough to carry protective equipment? This is from a country where we are losing approx one officer shot dead a year ( bear in mind we are only a small country ) and yet the government still refuse to allow police officers to carry firearms.

I recently purchased a Glock 37, double mag pouch w/mags, Stinger XT light and holder and a small Dorcy light(picked it up at Walmart for $18.00 and its an LED light too, has a belt clip, fits nicely on any duty belt) 2 cuffs w/case, ASP Baton, radio holder, glove case w/ three gloves in it, a duty belt to carry it all on, body armor.
As for this Dorcy light, you guys should pick one up, they work better then those fancy lights you see in the Galls Catalogs and for ALOT less.
You can find them in the outdoor section of any Walmart, just go to the flashlight section and look for a package with mostly red and gray coloring, light its self is black and says "Dorcy" right on the light. It will rub off with time if you dont want the white colored lettering on the light. This light I must admit has out done my Stinger light and thats no joke.
Anyways, just wanted to mention the Dorcy light as an alternative to buying those expensive LED lights in the Galls Catalogs

Here auxiliarys carry cuffs, wooden baton, glove holder, whistle (optional), and radio. We don't carry guns, asp batons, or mace yet. They are trying to revamp the program here after the two auxiliary officers that were killed in the line of duty in March. Here in the city we have 4,500 volunteer officers and lots of the members are old. I think if they give us more training the program will be taken serious. I think it's a joke.

In response to snaf1010, I can not believe Engand will not let the cops or anyone carry guns. I don't go to the mailbox without one.
