I don't know about other departments, but with LASD if you use an unauthorized weapon in a shooting, not only will you be subject to disciplinary action for violation of Department Policy, you are on your own in any civil action. Regardless of what LEOSA says, the lack of support in a civil action will be devastating, and the other side will use that lack of support against you. LASD authorizes such a wide variety of weapons there is little need to carry an unauthorized weapon.

If you are in your home, you can use anything available.
Even though Iím retired, I still seem to encounter incredibly stupid people.
