After various police departments have already opted for SIG Sauer's P320 (story here), today, the company announced that the Texas Department of Public Safety (TXDPS) has also integrated the P320 as its official service firearm throughout its divisions.
TXDPS is the statewide agency responsible for law enforcement and vehicle registration headquartered in Austin, TX/USA and is one of the largest law enforcement agencies in the country, comprised of 13 divisions including the Texas Highway Patrol, and the Texas Rangers.
“We are proud to continue our long-standing relationship with TXDPS and honored that they have chosen the SIG Sauer P320 as their official service firearm,” Tom Jankiewicz, Executive Vice President, Law Enforcement Sales, SIG Sauer, Inc., says. “The modularity and ability to customise the P320 pistol, combined with the ultimate in reliability and accuracy, made it the right choice for the diverse needs, across all divisions, for the Texas Department of Safety.”
TXDPS will acquire 4,000 SIG SAUER P320 pistols for official service use throughout the TXDPS Highway Patrol, Criminal Investigations Divisions (CID), Aircraft Division, Executive Protection Bureau, Intelligence and Counterterrorism, Texas Rangers, SWAT and Special Operations Group.
“To earn the confidence of such a highly revered law enforcement agency is truly a privilege for all of us within the SIG Sauer organisation. We value and appreciate the opportunity to assist the men and women of the Texas Department of Public Safety in carrying out its mission - to protect and serve the citizens of Texas,” Mr. Jankiewicz concludes.
