TLS training LEAs on open carry?
« on: August 21, 2015, 06:02:41 PM »
I read that the training mentioned in the linked article is being provided by TLS. If that is the case, how will TLS be training the officers regarding stop-and-ID? Will they be encouraging officers to stop-and-ID open carriers? Will they be giving LEAs the impression that open carriers should be open and agreeable to being stopped-and-IDed?

stealth,

In the LEO Trainings where TLS provides a program attorney to speak, our focus is to simply provide education on the law.  We do not and will not teach officers to hunt down open carry enthusiasts and arrest them, though, inevitably, specific enforcement strategies or tactics are up to each department and officer. Our training is meant to educate all parties and promote everyone's safety while respecting open carriers' civil rights in the process.
