    LEO in the performance of his official duties?

    So for those of you that are a bit more NRS/Federal Law Savvy...

    Is there a stipulation that requires a LEO to be in the performance of their official duties to legally carry their firearms in Gun Free Zones?

    In this example I'll use a school.

    So I was dropping my boys off at school this morning and there was a ~plain clothes LEO (khaki cargos, combat boots, polo) with his badge on his belt and Glock on his hip, hangin' out dropping his kid(s) off as well. I'm pretty sure dropping your kids off at school is not included in the job description of a Law Enforcement Officer.

    I know that whether or not they will get away with it or not is a question even a box of rocks knows the answer to. I'm just curious if the stipulation exists.

    Thanks

    Does NV have a "level" system for officers? In CO, there are Level 1 LEOs and Level 2 LEOs.

    As it was explained to me, a Level 1 peace officer is effectively always on duty - even if they're on shift, and they witness a crime, they're obligated and empowered to intervene. A Level 2 officer does not have the authority while off shift.

    even you and I can affect arrests .. its just that we have no immunity. Who explained these two levels? Curious.

    Cops get paid when they are on duty....that's the measure IMO

    It was a police officer, but the more I look into it, I think that information was outdated. I can find lots of references in the statutes, but not current definition. And it looks like the statute that DID define it has been changed since the definition.

    Well, he really was only explaining the concept to us as a clarification to a law that still had the reference in it. But I can't find the exact definition, so I'm working on a pure (admittedly hazy) memory.
