Service Badge

How long is it acceptable to wear a badge shroud over your badge to mourn the death of a fellow firefighter?

A badge shroud is a small strip of black elastic that covers the badge of a firefighter or police officer to indicate mourning the loss of a comrade. I was under the impression that 1 month is generally acceptable. Others say it should be removed the day after funeral services.

I'm in a law enforcement class and our officer was wearing a mourning band which he said would be there until the day after the funeral service. I guess that is the tradition.
