Q. What is the New Hanover County Sheriff’s Office policy on carrying a gun on school grounds if the deputy is not on duty?

A. Sheriff’s Office policy states that a deputy may carry their issued weapon off duty if he or she chooses to, said Sgt. Jerry Brewer, departmental spokesman.

“All deputies are trained and qualified to carry their issued weapon. A deputy may carry a non-issued weapon if they qualify with that weapon,” Brewer said.

Some deputies work in a capacity that requires them to wear plain clothes, he said.

“Unfortunately, being a sheriff’s deputy is a 24-hour-a-day job, on and off duty. This is why the sheriff has such high standards for his deputies,” Brewer said.
