Any Colorado LEO's want to tell me what you see on your screen when you run my plates before a pullover?

One State Patrolman told me it only says, "Person of Interest". Someone else says it says that I am a CCW holder. And I have also heard that some local departments aren't informed.

The wife & I have been pulled over three times since getting our CCW's and the reaction was differnet every time.
1) CSP: He said I should have informed him that I had a CCW.
2) Local PD: Acted like I was a bad guy, did a visual search of the car and asked me where I was and where I was going.
3) County Sheriff: Could have cared less about my CCW, just gave me my speeding ticket.

I've been pulled over approx. 3 times over the last 8 years that I've had CCW. In each case it was like my Get Out Of Jail Free card, like I was part of the Brotherhood.

Each LEO saw my CCW on his CCIC access, or I simply told them I had CCW. I did not receive a ticket in any of those encounters and I was easily bait for one.

A good one:
No license on my person, no registration, no proof of insurance, and speeding. LEO says, "I see you have CCW." Me: Yeah. Him: "Slow down and have a nice day." Shazam!

The best:
Driving at midnight through Jefferson County on my way to camping. My vehicle was LOADED with NFA stuff, I mean MG, SBR, and short shotguns. Sherrif pulls me over because I was going left of center to smooth out curves in the road as I was hauling my camper. I also tried to pass a guy but my gutless van couldn't do it and I had to back off.

I had no registration or proof of insurance, but the plates and insurance were actually current. The camper plates had expired over the winter.

LEO: Have you had anything to drink?
Me: No sir.
LEO: We are doing saturation patrols for drunk drivers and you were driving left of center and made a bad attempt to pass. Is it from the weight of the camper?
Me: Yes sir. Plus I come this way all the time and I know the road.
LEO: License, resgistration, proof of insurance please.
Me: Here is my license and CCW, but I cannot find my registration and proof of insurance.
LEO: Are you packing?
Me: No sir.
LEO: Why not? If you got it, pack it. OK, I'll be back.
(wait)
LEO: Thank you Mr. Lexington. Please drive safely and have a good weekend.

As far as I'm concerned CCW has put me IN with the right people.

The answer is Yes. The computer does show up the CCW.

The data under you name I believe is called a Bolo. Thats how I have heard it but not sure on the spelling. Alteast for the CSPD system.

Sorry, I had gone a decade w/o getting pulled over and then in three months, I was pulled over four times. Only one ticket, luckily, so I wasn't speeding that bad.

I just took a training course from a LEO to get my CCW. He saud that it will come up as "Person of Interest." Then when they look at the details it says you have a CCW.
