.
Police Officers and anxiety/depression meds?
Is it true that if a LEO is on antianxiety or depression meds that he/she cannot carry a gun? Or that if he/she is on these meds that if they should be involved in a critical incident (such as having to shoot a criminal) their medical records could be used against them?

It depends totally on the cause and circumstances behind the treatment for depression and anxiety. If the disorder is work related, then they do a fitness for duty report, a Psychologist and Medical Doctors compile a report on whether the person can or cannot carry out the duties of an Officer completely. If not, then the Officer is placed at another assignment where they can be treated and get better enough to return to duty. If its not work related you would seek medical help, your care provider would make the determination if you are or are not able to continue in your capacity as an Officer. If you cannot, then you would have to work that out with your department, they can either reassign you like above, or place you on some type of leave until you are well enough to return to duty. Like I said it totally depends on the circumstances, getting help is the most important. Just because you are on meds doesn't make you incapable of life, it means you're in the process of getting better. I know a few guys on meds and it doesn't affect their performance, they're still great Officers. Medical records can only be used to prove negligence, that's why its so important to be in the care of a medical professional. A medical professional will never recommend you stay in an assignment if it will prove to pose a threat to you or others, therefore if you're getting adequate help and you're abiding by their recommendations for care you have nothing to worry about.

Good luck to you!
