    Where evil lives
    Does anyone know if Police/Retired Police are allowed to carry in U.S. territories?

    IE: Puerto Rico, Virgin Islands, Guam etc..

    Asked more from curiosity than anything else.

    From my understanding, LEOSA applies to all U.S. States, territories, and district (DC).

    So the answer should be, yes.

    Should be yes, but I do not feel like being a guinea pig for the relatively new law.

    Whenever something has gone wrong, LEOSA seems to be more of a defense in court than keeping you out of handcuffs on the roadside.

    Some years ago I wrote to the police commissioner of the US Virgin Islands. Told him I intended to visit armed. No problem on his end. He did suggest I carry his letter with me when on the island, as it would avoid confusion should I run into one of his officers who was not familiar with the LEOSA.

    Yep. Covered.

    I don't think it's fair to say "whenever something has gone wrong, LEOSA seems to be more of a defense in court than keeping you out of handcuffs on the roadside." We KNOW (within reason) the number of times that LEOSA has been used as a defense in court, but we have absolutely no idea how many times it has been recognized on the street and under what situations.
