Firearms and Community Supervision Officers
Should CSOs (CSO) carry firearms? The 33rd/424th Judicial District allows all of its CSOs to carry firearms. This has been an eye-opening research topic as I did not realize how controversial this topic would be. This paper is not to influence Community Supervision and Corrections Departments one way or another but to simply show the data so that Directors and Judges can make an educated decision. CSCDs across the State should be aware that their decision impact their CSOs.
