  • Elgin Pd Duty Weapons

    Got a pretty good chance of getting a job offer w/ Elgin PD and was wondering what the issued sidearm is? Also, wondering if there's a list of approved weapons if you want to buy your own. I currently carry a Glock 21 for duty and want to know if I need to start getting used to something else?

    If you don't want to post this info on a public forum PM me.

    Thanks.

          talked to my BI and he really did not know. he was issued a S&W .45 but was unsure if the issued firearm changed or if there was a list to purchase off of. hence my request.

            they issue either

            1. Smith and Wesson in a .45

            2. Glock 22


            Those are your choices. Take it or leave it.

                You are issued a S&W .45 Model 4586 inititally. When you go to the academy you have to qualify with it. After that you can buy any weapon on the approved list (not sure what is approved), and then qualify to shoot that weapon of your choice.

                P.S.- I am in the academy right now for Elgin P.D.

                Goodluck!

                  Sweet! I'm already a certified PO, so no need for the academy. They send you guys to SLEA? I just had a class down there last week, so I may have seen ya. Good luck.
