New York state’s Lloyd Harbor Police Department has selected the SIG Sauer P320 as its new duty pistol replacing the .40 calibre Glock 23. The chambering of the new SIG duty pistols has not been confirmed. The small Long Island Town of Lloyd Harbor has a police department with 13 officers.
The model of P320 selected isn’t explicitly stated but SIG Sauer’s press release included a photo of the P320 X Compact, part of the X Series.
Here’s what SIG Sauer had to say about Lloyd Harbor PD’s adoption of the P320:
SIG SAUER, Inc. is proud to announce the Lloyd Harbor Police Department has transitioned to the SIG SAUER P320 9mm pistol from the GLOCK 23 as their official duty pistol. Lloyd Harbor Police Department serves the Village of Lloyd Harbor in Huntington, New York.
“Our transition to the SIG SAUER P320 pistol has been seamless, and my officers are impressed with both the superior performance and accuracy of the pistol,” began Chief Thomas Krumpter, Lloyd Harbor Police Department. “Additionally, we appreciate the modularity of the pistol, having the ability to choose a comfortable grip size, and all the safety features of the P320.”
The P320 pistol is a modular, striker-fired pistol, available in full-size, carry, compact, and subcompact sizing. The serialized trigger group makes the P320 adjustable to multiple calibers, size, and grip options. The P320 is available in 9mm, .357SIG, 40S&W, .45ACP, with a choice of contrast, or SIGLITE Night Sights. The intuitive 3-point takedown requires no trigger pull for disassembly, and safety features include a striker safety, disconnect safety, and optional manual safety.
“We are honored to welcome the officers of the Lloyd Harbor Police Department to the growing number of police agencies adopting the SIG SAUER P320 and supporting their transition,” added Tom Jankiewicz, Executive Vice President Law Enforcement Sales. “We are proud of the positive feedback we have received from Chief Krumpter, and look forward to strengthening our partnership with the officers protecting Lloyd Harbor.”
