Default Duty belt

Supplemental question for all you ACOs :
1) Have you ever found yourself forgetting your leash in the truck , being in that strange instance where you needed one but didn't have one with you at the time, or utilized the one you already had?[/b]

I just carry too much stuff to not have a duty belt. I used to have 9 cases or pouches on my belt, but now Iím down to 6.

To the question of the duty belt: Not yet. I have one that used to be my wife's when she was a reserve cop, but it would look dumb with my jeans and public works shirt. Currently asking for new 5.11 uniform that distinguishes me from a sewer worker.

To the question of being without a leash: Yes, absolutely. Also been without a bite stick, or treats, or tennis ball...

I have a basketweave handcuff case with 2 leashes: 1 long one and one shorter disposable one to give to people breaking the leashlaw.

I keep my leashes in my right cargo pocket of my pants. My belt has a cell phone case, bite stick, radio, knife, silent key holder and a can of citronella spray.

I try to keep a leash on one of my side pockets, but I have had an instance when I needed one and didn't have one, however I do not have a pouch for that on my belt, we carry a key pouch( vehicle key), swivel holster/asp baton, streamlight holster, radio, two sets of single cuffs, latex glove pouch, gun/holster, pepper spray holster, and a key ring cover thing (shelter keys)

Full duty belt with all the bells and whistles (minus a Taser). I wouldn't work without it... and heck if I did I could be fired for being out of uniform.

As far as being without a leash, our current uniform doesn't have cargo pockets, so I keep one in a handcuff case on my duty belt.

I'm not allowed to play with guns, but I do keep a pair of leather gloves in my left cargo pocket. I've never had much use for latex gloves. If I leave them in the truck they either melt or degrade to the point where they just rip apart when I try to put them on, and I have never had a way to carry them on my belt. I just wash off the blood and go on with my business. My training officer carried a leash in a handcuff case, but I haven't had access to a cuff case, and I sure ain't gonna buy one just to carry a leash in.

I usually give these people a citation instead of a leash.
