    I think he meant is there a duty to notify the LEO. I'm not sure that there is, as I have not seen a law requiring that you must notify them if there is any interaction with them. however, you do have to show them ID and a permit upon demand.

    5-73-315. Possession of license - Identification

    of licensee.

    (a)
    Any person possessing a valid license issued

    pursuant to this subchapter may carry a

    concealed handgun.

    (b)
    The licensee must carry the license, together

    with valid identification, at all times in

    which the licensee is carrying a concealed handgun

    and must display both the license and proper

    identification upon demand by a law enforcement

    officer.
