    I'm off too but it is authorized. Some people forget. When I work I don't.

    Theoretically an email has to come out to authorize it here but on 09/11/01 I started wearing mine. I remember my Sgt. telling me the cheif hadn't put out an email yet. I looked at him and told him I would proudly take the write up. He sent me to the fabric store for black elastic and had me put it on roll call.

    While not specifically authorized, I don't think my chief nor sergeant will have any issues with us banding the badges that day.

    We would have to wear badges for that to happen.

    I am retired but if I was still active I would wear the morning band. The flag in from of my house will be at half mass. Some Americans sometimes forget 9-11 but us LEOs.

    I was thinking on the sleeve or something. And, it would have be a local institution authorisation.

    We are wearing mourning bands. It was mandated by our chief. I also think that we might be turning on lights and siren for 1 minute at 1300. A neighboring dept is doing it. Haven't heard the official word on it yet.

    I'm working Sunday so will most certainly wear, as will everyone I'm sure.
