I have a IIIA vest, OC, two or three folding knives and a boot knife. Considering a Taser, but they havenít even developed a policy to allow our cops to carry the ones we already have, so I donít see that happening any time soon.
There are no problems, only challenges and opportunities.

ASP baton and OC as required by County but on my own I have bought a vest and learned some MMA style fighting. No tazer and we are not allowed to use the ASP on people.

Cheers, Scooterchic
It's not a damn moped, it's a scooter!

My catch poll, and the phone number of the police.

We have a catchpole, a radio and a very intimidating glare! I'll tell you the glare radio combination gets them every time! (What? Don't make me call someone!)
