Link to be posted as soon as I find more information:

Detectives car broken into, gun amongst other items taken. 40cal Glock, badge, and detective ID taken out of unmarked car at "upscale" tennis club.

This happend over a week ago and they have finally let us know to solicit help according to the news report on KIRO this evening at 11.:eek:

Is it typical for an officer to leave their service weapon behind?

We had something similar happen when the Seattle Police Chief had his weapon taken from his car while at the mall shopping with his wife durning Christmas.

I would call this stupid leaving badge, id, and gun in his car. I'm a city boy who never leaves anything in his car I can't face losing.

I've seen a lot of these threads on this forum about LEOs getting guns stolen from their cars. I've yet to see one on a "truck gun" or "trunk gun" being stolen. Most who have one say it's always a gun they could afford to lose. That seems to be a double standard.

Hey, if it's good for Seattle police chief Gil Kerlikowske (who got his loaded G26 stolen from his unmarked police car), then it's good for any rank and file officer in the state ;)

See, cops are losers.................. of their firearms :neener:

Like other's have said, I leave nothing too chance; especially valuables
left behind in a vechile. The tennis club should have provided customers
with "lock boxes" for their valuables; much like most PD's do LEO's before
they enter the booking room where suspects may be detained~! ;) :D

When it'd just be an annoyance, and they're not on duty, I reckon so. They say he's at a tennis club - and I reckon that tennis could get painful with a Glock flapping around while you're jumping.
Maybe he should get a drop-leg 'tactical' holster.
