P1 Tech Help: Geek gifts for LEOs
Some items on a cop's wish list may only be purchased by LEOs but there are great gadgets anyone can buy for the officer in their life
The holidays are the time for giving and hopefully for receiving as well. My family always asks me what I want for Christmas. I usually ask for the moon. I know the 2010 black Chevy Camaro SS is kind of out of the question. For now.
As police officers, we have a somewhat different taste in needs or wants than the typical person going to the mall. A LEO’s wish list may include a lighted pen to help with low lighting for tactical situations. We may ask for ‘Posse’ boxes to help keep documents ready or to fill out in the field. Some of you may even ask for a level-three TAC holster for your service pistol.
The typical person would have no idea what those items are or why we ask for them, but they asked us what we want, right? Some of the items we ask for can only be purchased by certified LEOs — that fully-decked-out AR-15 can be somewhat daunting for someone else to order for you — so I will mention some practical items a person may be able to purchase online (someplace like Amazon) or or at just about any retail store at the mall.

As you can see an officer’s wish list can be practical and inexpensive if you ask for the right things. You could hopefully get everything you ask for or at least come close to it.
As I have previously mentioned, always ensure the use of any of these items is not against your agency policy.
Have a safe and happy Holiday Season.
