Chicago, Milwaukee LEO carry from out of state?

Just wondering if I am going to have any issues with the local leo's if an out of state leo (Ohio) is carrying in their state. I am aware that HR218 is us wide but I know some that may not look at it that way. I am going to the Milwaukee baseball game and was wondering how they view leo carry in the stadium?

I will be staying in Milwaukee but was curious if any fellow leo's could set me straight, Thanks..

A few cops may not like it, but nationwide carry is a Fed law and they have to abide by it until the vacationing cop does something dumb.

Don't expect to carry into stadium venues any more. Many stadiums have a no firearms policy [backed with State law] for everyone expect on duty officers working the venues and since many of these facilities are build with tax monies in part or whole, they fall under the same exceptions as gov't buildings.

The sports leagues are also generally not friendly to off duty cops with firearms, so get something in writing from the team. No off duty carry at any NFL, NBA, NHL, MLB event in my AO.

They love it when they see cops at Dodger games. LAPD pretty much supplies all the off duty guys that work the game there and it's not uncommon to see the lot pretty full of plain Crown Vics.

This forum is not a bad place to ask, but you might want to check specifically with stadium security if you can find a number for them.

I went from IL to WI to a large concert in Madison some years back (University of Wisconsin arena) and called ahead to a University PD commander to mention my concealed carry. He basically said they would have officers assigned and "there's no real need for you to be armed, but you CAN if you really want to" ... which I did.

Always a good idea to check ahead just so you know what their mentality is on the topic.

You won't get any static carrying on the tin in Chicago. Don't do dumb stuff and nobody will bother you. If you encounter a location with metal detectors (sports stadium, Sears tower, etc) just talk to a security supervisor or on-duty officer working the event.

I live in Milwaukee, not currently LEO (used to be) but work very closely with MPD now. For everyday stuff, you will have no issues. If you're thinking of going to Miller Park, you won't be hassled. I'm not sure about their policy, but as long as you don't have a purse or backpack, all they check for is your ticket. A lot of the security are retired cops so they know what to look for, but again, once they know you're a LEO, you should be ok. Again, I don't know the policy, that's just my thought on it.

PM me if you want a beer/coffee while you're in Milwaukee. On me.

Even with LEOSA, it always helps to know what to expect from local jurisdictions.
