    In the State of SC, if you complete, submit, and are approved with the paperwork to become a Constable, this also gives you the authority to carry in any and all locations..
    Sometimes in life you have to stand your ground. It's a hard lesson to learn and even most adults don't get it, but in the end only I can be responsible for my life. If faced with any type of adversity, only I can overcome it. Waiting for someone else to take responsibility is a long fruitless wait.

    As far as I'm aware, most reserve officers do not have arrest authority, which is one of the requirements for carrying under LEOSA04.
    The preceding post may contain sarcasm; it's just better that way. However, it is still intended with construction and with the Love of my L-rd Y'shua.

    Same might be true for State Fairs and/or other events in your area.

    Again – just something to think about….
    One of the things I miss about Mobile....that and the pleasant, calm and almost unchanging weather there.

    But, here in Tennessee, when a Police officer is off duty, they have to follow the same rules and laws as us armed civilians do. Weird.

    In MS, a Reserve (or Part Time) Officer is a fully state certfied LEO and has all the same authority (on and off duty) as a full-time officer. Many agencies allow Reserves to patrol alone after they FTO.

    Tried to copy the information, but couldn't. Follow this link for more information. A friend who used to be a constable normally worked the Myrtle Beach Bike Week(s) and really enjoyed himself. I would consider it, but since I'm already a firefighter and EMT, I get to deal with the public enough as it is, and it's plenty...

    A reserve officer is granted his/her authority by the local chief of police or sheriff. A Constable is commissioned by the Governor and answers to the SC Law Enforcement Division. Like I said, I'm not any kind of LEO, so if anyone else out there has more definitive information, please share!

    Keep in mind, the powers and office of "Constable" vary hugely from state to state. And I don't mean just a little bit. In some states, they are fully certified LEO's. In others, they are not. In some states they are elected, in some they are not. In some states, they have their own deputies (Deputy Constables0, in some states they do not.

    In Arkansas, Reserve II or Part-Time Officer, takes a 160 hour mim. state certification course (mine was 174 hours) are a fully sworn and ceritified officer with full police powers. They can work up to 20 hours per week with pay, and all the hours you want with out.... I varies by department as to what you can do on and off duty.

    After spending 25 years as a reserve deputy I decided it was a good time to "retire". We had different uniforms but the same authority as full-time deputies. I had several opportunities to go full-time, but since I was involved in a family business it wouldn't have been a good financial move for me. So I did my part in helping our community stay safer, acquired a lot of good leo friends, and got in the habit of watching our backs in public long ago.

    BTW if anyone is interested in a career in law enforcement, a reserve position can be a great stepping stone. I saw a lot of guys advance, one of the guys that I interviewed for reserve, eventually became chief of police.
    Turn the election's in 2014 to a "2A Revolution". It will serve as a 1994 refresher not to "infringe" on our Second Amendment. We know who they are now.........SEND 'EM HOME. Our success in this will be proportional to how hard we work to make it happen.
