RARA-AVIS: Washington-- fact or fiction?

Some time in the late sixties one of my friends was a Washington policeman.. He always had his gun with him when he was out within city limits even though he was not on duty because he said that was a Washington regulation. In George Pelecanos' Sweet Forever one of the major charaters, Kevin Murphy, is a cop. At one point he parks his car near his house, leaves his gun in the car, and walks to a bar. Does anybody know if that rule was still in effect in 1986, the time of the book? Mark
