Thread: Can LEOs see permit status' on their computers?

    Can LEOs see permit status' on their computers?

    So my buddy was pulled over (OK he was parked in a parking lot and the officer pulled up) and after a brief round of questions the officer went back to his car and went to work on his computer. Upon returning to my friends vehicle the first thing he asked was "Are you carrying any weapons on you today?" Now that may sound like a normal question but there was no infraction committed, no warrants, nothing. Basically my friend fell asleep in his car at lunch in the parking lot of the store he works at. After a time-wasting round of questions the officer drove away.

    When an officer looks you up on his computer, does it tell him/her you have a CCW permit? I'm in CT if it makes any difference.

    I think they can tell in TN. The permit is linked to our drivers license. My permit number is the same as my DL number. I certainly have no idea about CT though.

    My understanding

    is that in most states it shows but there are some states where it doesn't.

    That was pretty much the agreement last time this was tossed all around on PDO.

    This is state specific, I know VA is this way. FL is not. It is common for some officers to ask if you have any weapons as a matter of procedure, doesn't necessarily imply they think you have one.

    In Texas if you are a CHL holder and have your weapon with you you are required to inform the officer when stopped that you have it. He will know soon enough because when he runs your driver's lic. it will come up.

    CCW info doesn't come up in California. If I'm not mistaken, the officer (if he wants to "validate" your permit) has to contact the issuing agency or the DOJ in Sacramento. If it's after hours I can imagine this might be a problem.

    Here in Michigan they can tell off your registration and I would think your drivers license.

  9. In Nevada as soon as your plate is run the Officer knows you have a permit. It depends on which databases the agency has access too.

    Personally, even though we have no requirement to inform, and even though the Officer already knows, I would still hand my permit with my license if stopped as a courtesy and to show my willingness to cooperate. ;)


    ALWAYS carry! ~ NEVER tell!

    CCW info DOES come up in California, you just need to access it. For wants and warrants (28,29) you use the DMV database. If you log into the DOJ data base you first see a CI #. That means they have been finger printed. You click on that, it shows what for, CCW.
