    Cool correction question

    In what states do state correctional officers get to carry badges?

    In California most county jails are run and staffed by the local sheriffs dept. making the correctional officers sheriffs deputies. (who are issued, and carry badges)

    I am not sure who runs the state prisions. I think that the correctional officers are contracted by the state.

    Almost every one does: State, County and Contract Jails.

    I have been collecting police and corrections badges since before I was issued my first one way back in the day.

    Some places issue a badge but officers do not wear in inside, FLA DOC was like this as was LA County, plus a few others but times and policy does change.

    One reason behing the badge issue is some states permit an off duty gun for CO's and the badge+credentials is needed to identify you as authorized, also some CO's are Peace Officers who can arrest for an observed crime... thus the tin.
