Officer Safety


We recentally had a accident involving two cars responding to a "officer needs assistance" call. During the accident investigation it was discovered that one of the shotguns was dislodged from the overhead mount during the accident. Not because the lock failed but because the magnetic lock was never secured when the gun was replaced. Make sure items within the your car are secure, seatbelt your duty bag in (it was on the floorboard). There is enough junk in the car to hurt us in a accident without adding to the problem. Drive safe.
