    NEW Cincinnati Police Department Policy? Really??

    Seems like this should be a mandatory or at the very least at an officer's discretion.

    BUGs now being allowed.

    Back in the 80's when we carried 686 357 magnums,my department allowed Bugs and Personal Off duty weapons we qualified with.Guns had to be at least 9mm,and had to be a Trusted Manufacturer IE. S&W,Colt,Browning ETC.Most Cops carried a 38 spl J frame,since there weren't too many mouse guns in 9mm.In the winter time we could get away with a shoulder holster with a Bug

    What saddens me the most is that the officers were denied a simple right to help do their job. They have just been allowed to carry a BUG? A good change for the people doing a tough job.

    Having had a close personal friend murdered with his own duty pistol, I am troubled that this isn't already an option for LEOs everywhere.

    CPD is going through a renaissance period right now with the hiring of the new polic chief. Prior, they were very old school and stuck in old and even failed policy. The BUG option is just one of many policies that are now entering the 21st century.

    we can carry a BUG, has to be reliable manufacturer, must carry factory JHP, no bigger than 9mm/.38
    its surprising how many of our officers don't carry a BUG though

    I'm ABSOLUTELY for it. If it could save one officer's life to have the option let them carry one. That is why I said originally it should be mandatory. Even if you didn't want to carry something in a little better caliber, an LCP for example would sure be a lot better than harsh language or a sharp stick.

    BUG's were the rule in SW Michigan, I was astounded how uncommon they were in when I moved to Florida.

    Cool. Me too. I just wasn't sure where you were going with you post at first. I responded to a call of an officer shot and her duty pistol failed. She dropped the guy with a BUG S&W 642 .38 and killed him. I always carried a backup.

    You would think conventional wisdom would dictate that officers in a dire situation, and by themselves would have a back up tool.

    Kind of like a carpenter with only one hammer, or an electrician with only one meter.
    That would be stupid, now wouldn't it??

    You would be surprised at how many cops don't even maintain their primary service pistol properly. I worked with a guy that re-assembled his gun incorrectly after a qualification and carried it inoperable for 3 months until we went to the range again and the problem was discovered.
