I could use some help from my fellow Indiana officers, especially reserves. I had an incident today after which I had a disagreement with a full-time officer. This officer believes that sworn reserves do not have off-duty arrest powers unless in uniform. This is not my understanding at all, and I have made (when necessary) off-duty arrests due to my security position. However, I could not quote exactly what the law says when we had our disagreement. My understanding is that most reserves (unless otherwise specified by their department) who are fully sworn with arrest powers on-duty have the same arrest powers off-duty if necessary. One positive about my department is that paid officers and reserve officers are treated the same while on duty and are extended many of the same privileges off-duty, including the ability to work off-duty. We frequently cover the town by ourselves so we are often primary/solo officers and not just backup officers. Does anyone know where the Indiana Code defines if there is (or is not) a difference between sworn reserve officers and sworn paid officers regarding off-duty arrest powers? I've been perusing the online version of the Code but I'm not having any luck.
