    Badge wallet

    I am looking for a full function badge wallet. Something that will hold a six pointed star badge with the round tips, hold my police ID card but then also have places for money, credit cards and a DL. I have a flat badge wallet now but it only holds my badge and ID card...

    Not that this answers your question (in fact quite the opposite), but ever since hearing the story of the deceased LASO deputy (Deputy York I believe) who was mugged off duty and immediately shot/executed by the robber when he opened his wallet and saw his badge I refuse to carry my badge/agency ID in a wallet.

    I second this, but I was "taught" during a Caliber Press seminar to not carry any police identification in the wallet you would be using for cash, credit cards, driver's license, etc. I have carried a separate flat badge wallet ever since and kept police ID out of my "transaction" wallet. It was even discussed keeping the flat badge in a front pants pocket, jacket pocket or along your ankle in a sock and your everyday wallet in the back pocket like most people do.

    I do not remember the agency or the victim's name, but the scenario was a "take-over" robbery in a bar. The suspects had everyone proned out on the floor and were taking their wallets. They opened the wallet of the off-duty, saw the badge and immediately shot him in the head.

    I think it's happened more than once.

    Officer C.H. Trinh in Houston PD suffered the same fate working in his parents grocery store off-duty. Killer is Chuong Duong Tong and is currently on death row. Robber put officer on the floor, took his wallet, saw his badge and shot him.

    I have a question though. is the badge even necessary? If you have a Commission Card, what extra value is the badge? I know everyone always caries their commission card and badge together both on duty and off but I don't understand the need for the badge part off duty. ??

    Agreed with the above about carrying a separate wallet/etc.
    As for the second part to Mike's question, without going into too much detail, we had a shooting call, undercover detective was nearby on an unrelated call. Detective (plain car/plain clothes/different radio channel) happened to be leaving the area and was driving a 'similar' vehicle. Detective was pulled over and ordered out at gunpoint due to the call. Detective played it perfectly, exited vehicle with hands on top of his head, and held his flat badge/wallet out with the badge exposed hanging from his hands. Officers were quickly able to figure out he was one of us. Handled well by all involved. I doubt this would have been as effective had he just had a commissioned card/etc. Just a thought.

    Glad it worked out. Our local police detectives wear their shield on their belt when in plainclothes on-duty (even uniformed patrol does this when they have court and uniform is not required). Not sure about what undercover types do.

    No offense to anyones shooting judgement, but if I'm being ordered out of the car at gunpoint, my hands are empty and the fingers are spread wide. We'll work on the ID part later. ID is in wallet in left rear pocket and you can get it yourself after handcuffing me, just don't shoot me. And you may want to put on gloves. lol.

    Like the others, I keep my credentials separate from my wallet. I actually use a money clip that has an ID holder. That way I can show off my 'bling' to all the hoochies!

    But that is the way I roll.
    Eunice: A .22? Oh you've gotta be kidding me. That's like bringing a knife to a gunfight.
    Detective Greenly: Yeah, or bringing a really small gun... to a gunfight.
