is it legal to carry one if it is not concealed? i am a young female who frequently walks alone and would feel much better with one. where would i go about aquiring one in durham?

You can legally carry a baton as long as it is not concealed and not used in a threatening manner. A baton could be considered threatening in some circumstances and could result in criminal charges.

Carrying a baton is not recommended by Durham Regional Police.
