ACCORDING TO INSPECTOR BILL KAYE OF THE LETHBRIDGE REGIONAL POLICE SERVICE (LRPS), THE HOLSTER WOULD HAVE BEEN USED BY "PLAINCLOTHES [UNDERCOVER OFFICERS OR DETECTIVES] MEMBERS FOR REVOLVERS... IT GOES ON YOUR BELT AND SITS UNDER YOUR SUIT JACKET AND WAS USED BY PLAINCLOTHES MEMBERS." ACCORDING TO KAYE, SIMILAR HOLSTERS ARE BEING USED TODAY BUT THEY ARE MADE OUT OF A CARBON PLASTIC. THE GUN CARRIED IN THE HOLSTER WOULD HAVE BEEN A .38 REVOLVER WITH A FOUR INCH BARREL. FOR MORE INFORMATION SEE PERMANENT FILE.
