Chief's are for the most part a appointed postitions, that normally come down from the Mayor's Office. I am a Police Chief, however it is for a small agency. I have a total of 7 sworn officers, 1 reserve/Aux and and civilian employee. My standpoint on CCW is different from my fellow Chief's. I SUPPORT the right to carry as long as they have a good clean record, i.e. felonies/crimes of violence.rustywood said:maybe this a little off topic and not being leo,why are lot of the higer ranks not in favor of ccw?from reading these fourms this is wide spread .is it THAT political?they dont trust the public?they lean that far to the left?or in fear of those that do that,s above them? i mean were they not line officer,s themself,s once?this would be the reasoning behind the gun confiscation,s in new orleans by the cheif,which i still would like to hear from him ,as to how he had the right.
