Wish I could although I work in the peoples republic of MD and on a Military site to boot and they sort of frown on that.
Life is too short, stop to smell the roses and don't let anyone take it away from you!
If they find out I have my P30 with me, and make an issue of it. I'll offer to work from home 100% of the time since complying with the policy to the letter of the law says I shouldn't bring myself into the office.
Since one of the three owners is my father in law, I doubt it'll ever be an issue.
In general, I would say yes...but you are subject to the same limitations as everyone else. Menaing that you couldnt carry in a Police Station or Correctional Facilty.In general, are non-sworn police employees allowed to carry with a permit?
We have lots of non sworn Police employess with permits. Unless granted an exemption by the Sheriff, they dont carry at work.
disclaimer..I dont know you state laws.To be sure you need to check it for yourself.
I would rather stand against the cannons of the wicked than against the prayers of the righteous.

We do not have a policy here at my office one way or the other. My lead install tech (office next to me) just got is permit and mine will be here by June 14th. We talk about guns all the time...I think he carries and keeps it in his bag next to his desk, but I have yet to ask.
Virginia is an at-will-employment state so I am some what apprehensive, but like the brother in law (packinnova) says, my life is far more important than a job.
I sit at a desk ALL DAY, with my office door shut, almost no one bothers me ever. I think I will be fine.
For about half the year I have to wear dress clothes and for most of the day I'm without a suit coat. The rest of the year is casual wear, so... I will neither confirm nor deny anything further.
Our policy says that CHL carriers can carry. I wrote the policy.

sadly not. I have to visit clients which frequently are in areas (e.g. schools) that do not allow to carry, and I don't like to keep it locked in the car all day. I don't want to contribute to the local gangsta gun-collection by having it stolen out of my car.

I found out that he had a Beretta 25 that he kept in his car. I didn't ask if he had a CCW or not.
I work for a family owned Moving Company and the owner also carries full time so it's no big deal for me to carry.. I carry a HK USPc in 9mm in a CrossBreed holster.. I tuck my t-shirt in over my gun and leave my shirt untucked. Nobody is the wiser.
