    Formerly the property of a now retired NYPD officer; Duty Belt (NYPD) (Used) contains a holster for each piece of equipment permitted for use by an on-duty NYPD officer. The holsters are empty and will remain so due to the stipulations laid out in Article 265 of NYC’s Penal code on civilian possession of weapons and equipment used by the NYPD.
    There exists no readily accessible public record of what an on-duty NYPD officer may or may not carry in terms of equipment and weaponry. Limited press inquiries, publicly accessible production bid invitations, court records, and voyeuristic photographic documentation can inform to a large degree what the on-duty officer may employ; that information is only available due to the efforts of the public. The acquisition of a used duty belt from a recently retired NYPD officer acts as an index for what an officer may carry, and in turn use against the civilian population of New York.

    Of the tools and weapons employed by the NYPD, the only item that is mutually accessible by both the public and the police are the nitrile gloves. These gloves are used to prevent skin to skin contact between officer and civilian during the arrest or detainment process. Duty Belt (NYPD) (Used) is available for purchase, however the purchase of this object carries with it the legal liabilities of the ownership of police equipment as a civilian.
