Not true for Riverside County Sheriffs.

That seems strange. That means police can't shoot at public ranges, they can't shoot on private property, they can't shoot on BLM land, etc...

What about training courses? What if they wanted to train with Travis Haley or John Lovell? What if it's family tradition to camp out at BLM land and shoot with the family? What if you have a friend or family, who is not a LEO, whom you like to shoot with regularly at gun ranges? Are all of these off limits? Is if different for different agencies? What are people's experiences with this?

For respect and privacy reasons I'm not going to state the city in which I spoke to this officer.

Thank you!
That is either a truely imaginary conversation with a non existing LEO, or you were being a pain and the LEO wanted to get rid of you any way he could.

There is no such limitation in California or any of other states.

There are definitely departments that restrict the usage of department-owned firearms. My department does not allow me to shoot my department-owned weapon an any outside ranges without permission. Obviously if I own my sidearm that is a different story.

So how does the permission thingy work??

You go: hey Capitan, I feel like slumming today. Can I please please go shoot at Angeles range with the gang bangers??

Capitan: go ahead. Nobody gives a chet. Just do not loose that $399 polymer piece we gave you. And, make sure you do not shoot any bystanders.
Why are you bothering me on your day off?

An agency I previously worked for prohibited you from practicing with your duty weapon outside of work trainings. I donít think any agency can prohibit you from shooting on your personal time, in a safe and legal manner of course.

A lot of those rules are department specific, so there isn't one rule that apply to all agencies. At my range there is 1 dedicated for LEO but that's just for their privacy or when they practice with Class 3 weapons. Several LEO are regulars in our matches.

If your conversation as posted is 100% correct, the officer was either lying to you as others said to avoid shooting with you, just to pull your leg, or he has no idea what his policy actually states. He might have a policy on when/where he can shoot on duty or with duty gear but to prohibit all off duty shooting? That would be truly amazing...
