Are you a sworn officer with general powers of arrest, and does AZ consider you a LEO?
Generally speaking that's what you need to meet the LEOSA barrier which I'm guessing is what you are hoping to be able to use as your proof of being better than the rest of us.
Not that I disagree with the notion that there are some areas of which you speak where being unarmed is a distinct disadvantage. I'm just generally PO'd about Only Ones.
Specifically in answer to your question:
http://www.azleg.gov/FormatDocument....38&DocType=ARS see Section 8(b)
http://www.azleg.gov/FormatDocument....38&DocType=ARS but see especially Section D and then review the policies of "undisclosed location" and it's parent organization. I'm thinking this is where your dream will come crashing down around your head.
