Clackamas County, OR Sheriff's Office and Lincoln City, OR PD. Lincoln City may have gotten a new chief and changed that, but I'm not sure.

It seems as if most of the southern tip of Illinois still allow it. The majority of my department and the others in Williamson county carry them. By far the most popular in this county.

Missouri...

The St. Francois County Sheriff's Office allows the C&L 1911. This is a fast growing county and department close to St. Louis, right now at around 80 deputies. In fact, the Sheriff carries a Colt Series 70 C&L. Not sure of other Show Me State agencies?

Also, Yuma Co., Cochise Co., all in Arizona.

Anyone know where to research to see if 1911 approval is on the rise or on the decline?

My department is under the assumption that the 1911 is being done away with not brought back.

I have yet to find someone that can give a valid reason why the 1911 is not a good pistol for LE work.

I believe the sheriffs in Pierce County Wa are allowed to carry them. I'll have to shoot my sister's fiance an e-mail to make sure.

You know, come to think of it you're right. What's up with that? I'm sure there's got to be agencies from back east that are still allowing the 1911. Looks like they are very popular in the southern United States.

I hope to add Dallas County SO to that list real soon. Recently with a new Sheriff we have allowed 1911's to be listed as Secondary and Off Duty weapons. We are supposed to be getting new policy allowing 1911's for primary carry, of course we have a liberal carry policy right now. We are issued Glock 22 but can carry any of the big name DA/SA 9mm and above autos. I guess only time will tell on the 1911 as primary carry, hopefully another month till transition course as that is when my SA 1911 will be back from Don Williams.

Effective today, you can add Dallas County SO to your list. New firearms policy allows Colt, Kimber, Para Ordinance and Springfield Armoy 1911 in 45ACP, 10mm and 38 Super. Of course we have to attend a 1911 transition course and there are a some guidelines on who can attend the transition course. I just wonder how long it will take for the 1st transition course. Now if we could get a pay raise and remember what being the Chief LEO in the County is.

Last night, I was paged out to assist in a pursuit that was taking place in my city. The chase had started in a neighoring county, with that county and a city officer from that county taking part. After all was said and done, and a VERY 10-46 cowboy was securely placed in a patrol car, I happened to notice that ALL officers from the neighboring county and PD were carrying 1911s. Made me feel right at home, with my Kimber TLE in my holster.
With this being the case, you can add:

Elk County Sheriff's Office, Kansas
Howard Police Department, Howard, Kansas to the list.

You can add Antioch PD in California to that list. They must pass a "Single Action Pistol Course" to be able to carry a 1911 or HiPower.

I had the same question when I started this thread. By looking at the list and by reading various articles out there I would state they are on the rise. Problem is that I don't know how many agencies allowed them in the past or not (say 10-15 years ago). There is no way I can rationally answer that without those statistics. If I were you I would make a call to Massaad Ayoob and ask him for some direction (yes, he will speak to you and help).

2 More 1911 Depts

I work for the sheriffs police and we have to purchase our own weapons so I carry a parkerized SA 1911. Out of about 105 corrections officers I'm the only one to carry a 1911. Most carry plastic.

The .45 ACP in any platform is the preferred weapon of the agency I'm about to start with. Abernathy Police Department in West Texas.
