: Had a friend once tell me: "Anyone who looks at you can tell in an instant that you are a cop by the way you walk."

: "Really ??" I was quite surprised by his statement.

: "Sure", he said, "You always walk with your arms swinging by your side like everyone else, but with your arms held ever so slightly away from your body."

: This is the natural result of walking all day with a gun belt full of gear wrapped around me, arms held where they won't bump into my cuffs and sidearm, etc.
Tom, you can also notice a cop, by his boot walk. We do walk differently for sure. Arms and hands away from your belt, I can identify with that, but did not know I did it. LOL Also the way we size people up while talking to them is a sure sign as well. Feet to head, an reverse, looking at boots,GET THAT BOOTS, hands, where they are, checking out if anything on them threatening, and eyes, if they are focused on us, or something else. I have actually had people mention to me that they could tell I was an officer, just by my appearance. We are usually very groomed, neat, and well dressed, even in casual clothes. Just the way we are. I am retired AF, so go figure, my appearance.
