The Smith & Wesson M&P will soon get the boot by the Tampa Police Department as the organization moves to the Sig Sauer P320 as its new duty pistol.
The Tampa Police Department, boasting over 1,000 sworn officers in three districts of Tampa, will acquire approximately 1,375 Sig P320s to replace its current force of Smith & Wesson M&P’s.
Tom Jankiewicz, Executive Vice president of Law Enforcement Sales at Sig Sauer said the move to the Sig P320 is due to the pistol’s modular style.
“Sig Sauer is honored to earn the trust of the men and women of the Tampa Police Department through their selection of the P320 pistol as their official duty pistol,” Jankiewicz commented in a news release. “The modularity of the P320, with its ability to select grip size, combined with the proven reliability, accuracy, and safety of the firearm made it the right choice for this diverse group of officers.”
