    The NYPD Equipment Section, both the physical location in Police Headquarters and the online version, is restricted to employees only.

    Considering the website is named "NYPD Equipment" and to purchase equipment you have to give NYPD identification, I would say 'no'.

    Hey that's an interesting list. I always wondered what they had to pay for certain stuff. Thanks.

    Would someone have a picture of that newer NYPD jacket?

The basic rule is you use what you were trained on when you were hired.

    I would take straight baton anytime over expandable because they just don't work.

    What is RMP?

    The Regular cops can carry the wooden batons, ASP expandable batons, polycarbonate batons or the PR-24 (i.e. side handle batons).
    How does this system work? Can officers just choose that what they get issued? Can they say I want PR-24 and some want ASP?

    No Auxiliary Police Officers carry a straight baton and can only carry a straight baton. NYPD Officers carry expandibles.
