 I'm a 19 year old deputy in California. I have a department issued weapon and am ccw authorized. I am told that I can't purchase a ccw. After some reseach I'm finding that I can possess one just not purchase it? How would that work? Can my parents purchase one and I can carry it? Thanks!


 


Moved so OP can see any responses.

Pitcher tees the rubber. Looks for the signs. Nods. Wind up and delivers.


Swing and a miss. Strike one. High fast ball, 94 MPH.


Will the batter take another whiff and clearly miss the ball ?


Big question as the batter steps out of the box and shakes off the first untruth.

Hmmmmmmmm.Sarge, how old does one have to be to be a Sworn LEO in California. I only ask, because in March of 2013, the OP posted a question about keeping the ear piece in place. This would indicate at that time the OP was 18ish, was Active LEO, and already had been through the hiring process and the academy. Something doesn't seem right here. Call me suspicious, but..............

I thought that was odd, too--so I did some digging. If this person is in San Diego County as I have deduced, then they can't be hired for patrol--but apparently they can be hired for Detentions/Courts:


(From San Diego County Sheriff's website)


Deputy Sheriff Detentions/Courts:


18 years of age at the time of the test. (There is no maximum age limit)


U.S. citizen or Resident Alien in the process of becoming a U.S. citizen


U.S. High School graduate or G.E.D.


No felony convictions. Not on Probation. Misdemeanors may be disqualifying depending on the number, type of violation, and date of the violation.


Vision: 20/100 uncorrected, corrected to at least 20/30


Valid California Drivers License prior to appointment. Valid photo ID to take the written exam.


Effective oral and written communications in English.

 Could this be what she is talking about. I don't know the process in California. In NJ which only has about 250 ccw permits, so forget that, your not getting one in NJ. You can own guns at 18 after a background check, but not carry,


 In NJ you can purchase a used gun at 18, you must be 21 to purchase a brand new gun. (as for what the difference, I have no clue). I know department that do not issue weapons to officers. So the new hire wants a brand new gun, someone must purchase the new gun and then transfer it to the new hire and it would be considered a used weapon. Like I said I'm not sure if that is what she means or the laws of California.

I'm not sure why you are suspicious. I was an explorer when I wrote the post about the earpiece. I was hired this year with a county sheriff and am working in the jails.

Well, the earpiece post didn't mention you were an explorer. As a matter of fact, you mentioned in that thread you had been in the position "for quite a while" and also mentioned co-workers. I was an Explorer with the Fire Department, and even spent quite a bit of time with them. I never considered them (or any of my fellow Explorers) as "Co-Workers".


Incidentally, Cops are suspicious by nature.

Good memory Timmy. The OP came across as a road deputy not a jailer.

I'm guessing they're not allowed to possess handguns outside of their duties at the jail until they're 21--18 for long guns, 21 for handguns (in California). Is that correct?

I have a question here : Are you an LEO or are you a jailer or neither ??? In NC you do not have to be an LEO to work in the jail.....Something sounds fishy to me...All your puzzle pieces are not fitting together...
