I've worn both uniforms, active duty CG 1979-1982 and 2001-2003 (reserve service in between, and as a LEO in Los Angeles County (1982 - Present).

Most of my LEO counterparts would not be accepting of CG members as being fellow LEOs. The main reason is lack of frequent interaction, and the highly compartmentalized functions performed by USCG members.

That's my best guess as to why San Fernando PD hooked up the reservist.
