Montgomery Alabama PD & Webb County Sheriff’s Office Selecting P320
After various police departments (PD) already opting for SIG Sauer‘s P320 (stories here, here and here), the company recently announced that the Montgomery Alabama PD and the Webb County Sheriff’s Office have selected the SIG SAUER P320 as their official duty firearm.
The Montgomery PD has a complement of more than 500 sworn officers protecting the second largest city in the state, with over 200,000 citizens. “We are honoured that the Montgomery, Alabama PD has chosen the P320 as their official duty firearm for its full complement of officers,” said Tom Jankiewicz, Executive Vice President, Law Enforcement Sales, SIG SAUER, Inc. “The P320’s unique modular design and serialised trigger-group gives the men and women of the Montgomery Police Department the ability to select frame and grip size for their official duty pistol according to personal preference. This is really an ideal feature for a large police force like Montgomery.”
SIG Sauer will deliver P320 pistols to replace their previously issued Glock pistols.
The Webb County Sheriff is responsible for patrol duties, the county jail, and security of the courts. Additionally, the Sheriff’s Office operates an aviation unit and mental health unit. Webb County is the sixth largest county in the state, located in South Texas and includes the border community of Laredo, Texas. “The transition to the SIG SAUER P320 pistol has been seamless. The superior ergonomics, ease of use, and the excellent trigger action of the P320 has resulted in some of the highest qualifying scores from our personnel,” Sheriff Martin Cuellar, Webb County Sheriff, explained. “The P320 is built with features the skilled shooter appreciates, and features that the shooter with less enthusiasm about firearms utilizes, without even knowing the features are there. Our personnel are adapting to this pistol faster than anything I have seen, and we are extremely pleased with the training and support provided by SIG Sauer.”
The Webb County Sheriff’s Office has acquired over 300 9mm P320 pistols and is currently placing them into service.
“Our commitment to our law enforcement partners extends well beyond the procurement and acquisition process,” Mr Jankiewicz concludes. “We are very pleased, and humbled, about the positive feedback we have received regarding the P320 pistol, and SIG Sauer service, from the Webb County Sheriff’s Office and we look forward to developing our partnership with the Montgomery PD and supporting their mission – to safeguard the life and property, preserve the peace, prevent and detect crime, enforce the law, and protect the rights of all citizens.”
