I know a few. CCW holders are more clearly exempted from the federal Gun Free School Zone than are CA peace officers.
"Police, at all times, should maintain a relationship with the public that gives reality to the historic tradition that the police are the public and the public are the police; the police being only members of the public who are paid to give full-time attention to duties which are incumbent upon every citizen."
