So our department is working a special event with thousands of drunks. We have 3 of the new guys that have just been sworn in, not trained in plain clothes for more of a ride-a-long on foot. The part that has just been bugging me for the last couple of days is, 2 of them wearing identification. One wearing a badge on belt and the other wearing a LE jacket. Both of those 2 were unarmed. Now, I'm not the brightest one of the bunch, but if I am in civilian clothes and unarmed, I am surely not going to wear anything that will ID me as LE. I just see it as a officer safety issue, what's your thoughts?
