my understanding in eastern NC is LEs, when off duty or outside their jurisdiction, are just like JQP and subject to the same firearm statues as JQP. that stated, not sure how other officers would react to their own violating firearm statutes, if at all?
now, in my neck of the woods, i have been told by several folk, who should know, that the Goldsboro chief has instituted written policy stating his officers are on duty 24/7, so not sure the implications of that kind of policy. I am unable to verify if the 'new' replacement, up for election, sheriff has such a policy.
there is in NC statutes specific judicial and boundary criteria outlined in the statutes which has been discussed earlier this year.
sorry for being vague but not sure with the brotherhood there is anybody who would enforce those statutes against a fellow officer.
