Is it legal to carry a non-expandable, sidehandled baton in public?

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.
