    WV Div of Corrections,

    O.K sorry but this is not so related to open carry, but I am interested in as many opinions as possible.

    Is anyone aware of the West Virginia Division of Corrections ability to carry firearms off duty without a CCW? Are they regarded as LEO's or something else, they are armed for prisoner transports and hospital stay and such like, but I was curious to see if they are covered under LEOSA.

    I do work for the DOC, but am not firearms qualified, I have asked at work but even the authorities dont seem to have a clear understanding.

    Thanks in advance..

    The key issue for most people in corrections, is arrest authority. You must have statutory powers of arrest in order to carry under LEOSA.
