Please Read: What Are The Chances Of Being Granted A Ccw
Hello. I currently work for a police department as a contracted custody transport officer.. i fall under pc 831.6. that pc makes me a public officer for the city i work for. i contract through a security company. my job includes all dealings with prisoners from on the scene of the crime all the way through booking at the jail. however we do not have ccw permits for off duty carry. i know that the security company does not want to issue ccw's. what do you think the chances are that if i applied on my own i would be granted a ccw? i deal with all the prisoners that the PD arrests and in many cases have seen them when i am off duty. at this point there has not been an issue with any former prisoners, but i want to be sure to be prepared if something happens... i am armed while on duty.
i am going to try and get my ccw not FOR my work but BECAUSE of my work. any advice you could share with me would be very helpful.
