Several states and cities have restrictions on police batons. Below is a list of locations where only Police Officers may carry these batons.
- New York
- Washington DC
As you’ll see in most any state listed on this site any impact device carried with the intent to be used as a weapon can be interpreted as a billy club.
The above list is the locations where I have found specific laws prohibiting the carrying of expandable (ASP type) batons by non Law Enforcement Personnel.
