Missouri Department of Revenue compliance officers to carry firearms

(From the Missouri Department of Revenue)

Missouri Department of Revenue Director Joel Walters today issued the following statement:

Effective today, the Department of Revenue is implementing policy in accordance with the original intent of legislation enacted by the General Assembly, giving our 12 compliance investigators the ability to carry firearms in the line of duty. This action is necessary to help ensure agent safety in our Compliance and Investigation Bureau. 

This policy was modeled after, and brings the department into alignment with the Department of Corrections’ Probation and Parole, a comparable state agency whose policy allows its investigators to carry firearms.
