New Hampshire’s Newington Police Department have transitioned to the SIG Sauer P320. With just 10 full time and three more part time officers, this small department may be dwarfed by some of SIG’s other recent law enforcement contracts but Newington PD are responsible for serving not just Newington but also Portsmouth, New Hampshire’s Pease International Tradeport – home to SIG Sauer’s factory and headquarters.
Here’s what SIG have to say about Newington PD adopting the P320:
SIG SAUER, Inc. is proud to announce the Newington, New Hampshire Police Department has transitioned to the SIG SAUER P320 (9mm), as their official duty pistol. The Newington Police Department is a full-service law enforcement agency responsible for protecting the citizens of Newington and the Pease International Tradeport, home to SIG SAUER Worldwide Headquarters.
“When it comes to quality, performance and safety the SIG SAUER P320 really delivers. Our officers appreciate the modularity and having the ability to fit the pistol to their grip,” began Captain Michael Sullivan, Newington, NH Police Department. “We carry the SIG SAUER P320 with great pride because it’s the premier pistol for law enforcement, and the fact that it’s made right here in the community we are sworn to serve and protect makes it especially meaningful.”
The P320 is a modular, striker-fired pistol available in full-size, carry, compact, and subcompact sizing. The serialized trigger group makes the P320 adaptable to multiple caliber, size, and grip options. The P320 is available in 9mm, .357SIG, 40S&W, and .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.
