    LEO contact today

    Had a LE encounter today and just thought I'd share with the forum.

    Early this morning my neighbor came knocking upon my door to tell me that he had just called the Sheriffs office on another neighbor. This particular neighbor is a convicted/registered pedophile. A BG. He told me that this guys dogs were loose again and killed his cat. He said that he was aware that we were having problems with the dogs as well and would it be ok if the officer came over and got a report from us. I said I thought it would be a good idea. So...

    I live in an inform state (NE) so when the Officer approached me (I was setting up a sprinkler in the yard) and made contact I handed him my DL, CHL and informed him I was carrying. He briefly examined the CHL and then he got this cheshire grin from ear to ear. As he was handing them back to me he said, "You know, I really like this! You know why? Because an armed society is a polite society!"

    Our local Officers were out on calls so this Officer came in from the next town over. I didn't know him. It was a really nice encounter and I just thought I'd share with the forum.

    Nice. I really think the majority of LEO handle these encounters with legally armed citizens the right way, but the bad ones are the ones that get splashed all over the internet. So thanks for posting a good one.

    That sounds like a great encounter! Kudos to that LEO!

    Sounds like a great encounter and a great LEO. Just, curious, though - you still have to inform, even though this was on your property and you weren't being stopped by the officer?

    Yep.

    If you are a permit holder carrying a concealed handgun and are officially contacted by any peace officer or emergency services personnel, you must immediately inform the peace officer or emergency service personnel of the concealed handgun unless you are physically unable to do so. These individuals have the right to determine whether it is necessary to secure the handgun during the contact for the safety of any person.

    The law here states contact without any reference to private or public property.

    Don't tell that to some people around here.

    Sure there are bad cops. Just like there are bad librarians, bad grandmothers, bad forum members. But what about all the conscientious ones?

    Sweeping generalities about any profession that emphasize only the negative are nothing more than an exhibition of small-mindedness.

    Y'all remember that anytime it is exhibited here on the Forum.

    Last time I talked to an on duty LEO, he asked what I had and where it was. When I told him it was a 229 on my belt, he looked at me and said he'd like to shoot that sometime.
