The City of Moody Alabama has the magnificent 1911 on their list of approved duty weapons for their officers to carry.

Several pages ago I stated I would check within Minnesota via the Chief's Association but getting responses was obviously something that wasn't high on other departments list of priorities. Anyway, from what I gather, the vast majority of the state lets you carry whatever you want within reason. Basically, a department either issued you a weapon or you were free to choose; I'm still waiting to hear from one that strictly precluded the 1911. I didn't research off duty options.

I plan on tackling this again with a little more vigor and will report what I find.

Watsonville CA Police authorize them.

Their deputy chief who got it done there moved on to Capitola Police so I would not surprised if they end up there too.

Loving, NM Police Dept.

When I first got out, I moved to New Mexico since I have family in Carlsbad.

My friend was working in Loving, NM on a 4 man PD and they allow the 1911 to be carried there. He actually carried a Kimber 1911 and his Sergeant/Acting Chief was carrying a Sig P220 at the time, but had carried a 1911 also. Their Corporal carried a REALLY NICE Springfield Champion 1911 as his duty weapon.
Last I knew, their city council was pushing to purchase and furnish PD weapons so that everyone was uniform. My friend, the Sergeant/ former Chief was pushing for either the Nighthawk GRP, Springfield Operator, or Kimber 1911s; because this was in the end of 2011 (100 yr 1911 anniversary) they were unable to get even a CHEAP 1911, and wound up with the Smith and Wesson M&P 45...

Where we were both from in NW, the local PD allows carry of the 1911 also. As a matter of fact, I know of a few guys that carry Wilson 1911s along with Kimbers and Colts....

Waukesha Co. Sheriff's Department here in Wisconsin still authorizes 1911s. Most don't however carry them I'm told by a deputy that does. I'm told 5-6 currently do.

If my best friend and I can land getting hired by that agency, +2 to the list.

Speaking with a fellow LEO (Different agency) and USPSA shooter recently, he informed me about a recent OIS where an academy classmate of mine was killed. I shoot Single Stack by the way and train DAILY with my LB...

One of the first Officers to find the armed suspect who had a shotgun, the Officer was carrying a 1911 (Unknown make) and got off the his first shot, didnt make a second shot as he was running malfunction drills. Luckily others made numerous shots on the suspect. The conclusion was the gun was fine, his grip was off and did not activate the GS. So for those of you who do and are lucky enough to carry one, PLEASE train regularly.

No matter what you carry, this is absolutely right... and practice your reloads, which are twice as important if you carry a 1911.

1911 in S. TX

VIA Transit Police in San Antonio allows them. Officers have Colts, Ed Browns, Kimbers, Springers, and Wilsons. Chief is an Ed Brown fan.

Olmos Park PD (in San Antonio area) issues Kimbers.

Good news!

Our agency (County Sheriff's Office) just approved 1911s as Duty Weapons. Must be 4" to 5" barrels in the standard calibers. Each officer must supply his own pistol (which all of us but one have already). Good to have a Sheriff who will listen to input and change his protocols. (He has carried a Sig 226 for more than 20 years and that will remain the standard agency issue).

Many of the smaller agencies will ask that you provide your own weapon. With a request like that most are not to particular as to what you carry. I was told when I first started "anything you want, just as long as it isn't ridiculous (Desert Eagle, HUGE revolver, .22cal) and you can qualify with it.

I know Denton and Tarrant counties Tx plus I think Dallas county as well.

Crockett county used to not sure they still do but with Jim Wilsons influence on that agency I suspect that there are many 1911s on duty there to this day.
