Do you carry a tourniquet on your duty belt? Just another example of why you need to.

    No, not on my belt. I have one under my shirt, on my vest. There are a few, in my patrol vehicle.

    I don't have one. I've had a good ride. My plan is to leave my wife very well off.

    Our last update training saw the PD giving us new ones, so I ended up carrying two. One on my vest, the other in a cargo pocket.

    I figure if more than one is needed, it's worth the little bit of extra inconvenience to have it.

    No. I’m issued one but it stays in my patrol bag. I got enough **** to carry and just haven’t found anywhere to put it. I’ve considered rigging some way to carry it on my ankle, because I have no space available on my belt from 9:00 to 3:00. And I no longer carry anything on my back.

    Have a few "tactical cheeseburgers." That'll create some space :)

    Keep one on my vest carrier and one in my bag, but I'm a detective so there's that.

    I’ve got a CAT tucked into the non gun side of my ankle holster. Theres 2 more CATs on my Plate Carrier, and as soon as I stop procrastinating and order them we will have a CAT attached to all of our long gun stocks.
    Everyone who works my shift is required to have one on them, and our in car PCs all have Ifaks.
    Collim try your vest straps for now.

    On my duty belt. Hate it there but that's where it's to be carried.
