    protocol with police officers

    I know if I'm driving a car an get pulled over I should tell officer I'm carrying but this morning four officers came in a diner an sat across from me,was it nessasary to inform them?I was thinking would it be a good idea to have a business card that stated the fact an just hand it to them? Would be a lot easyer than walking over to them an making them very nervous,just a thought

    If you have a license the short answer is no. If you do not have a license to carry you better not tell them unless you want to go to jail.

    IIRC Michigan law basically says you need to inform IF you are interacting with an officer while he is performing his duties (pulled you over, questioning you as a witness or suspect, etc.). No need to otherwise.

    Yeah, no... LEO isn't interested in your legally CC. And, in TEXAS, you are NOT required to inform an LEO that you CC.

    Especially don't bother them if they're eating lunch. You don't need to worry about bothering every cop you see just because you have a CCL.

    This. ONLY during official interaction. If LEO just says "Hi. Nice weather." There is no duty to inform.

    If you are pulled over for a traffic violation in Texas, you need to show both CCL and DL.

    I'm not saying that I wouldn't notify an officer if I were pulled over... however, as of September 1, 2009, you are no longer required to do so in Texas.

    The 81st Texas Legislature passed several new House Bills that either directly or indirectly effect Concealed Handgun Laws or specific firearms laws.

    HB2730 – Removes DPS authority to suspend a concealed handgun license (CHL) for the holder’s failure to display the CHL to a peace officer on demand. It removes associated penalties and suspensions for the failure to display. source

    Technically I think you are still required to notify but they removed the penality if you don't which is I guess a law without any teeth.

    Unless I am in a mandatory notification state, I do NOT notify right away. If I need to reach to an area where my pistol is, I do. If the officer were to ask me to step out of the vehicle, I would. I would never consider telling every officer I see that I am carrying a concealed pistol. Tell the wrong officer that you are carrying a pistol and you will be looking at charges of threatening an officer.
