Erik Agazim to Launch Law Enforcement Charity

Friday, March 23rd, 2018

Erik Agazim, the founder of National Police Ammunition, is celebrating the company’s 9th year in business.

Hialeah, Fla. (March 2018)  – National Police Ammunition, founded in 2009, is focused on lead-free alternative ammunition, specially designed and developed for law enforcement use. In celebration of the nine-year milestone, Agazim is founding EALEO Charities-Erik Agazim Law Enforcement Officers Charities-to give back to the law enforcement community.

The soon-to-be-founded organization will be divided into three main categories, according to Agazim. These will be merit-based scholarships, a foundation for fallen officers, and an equipment grants program. Merit-based scholarships will assist low-income cadets with the tuition and equipment required by police academies.

Meanwhile, the assistance foundation will provide support for fallen officers and their families, through work carried out directly with local police associations. Lastly, equipment grant programs will aid under-funded agencies with the critical equipment and training ammunition which they require.

“I’ve had the honor to work with law enforcement for the last nine years and have learned the challenges they face financially,” says Agazim of the project.

“From young cadets entering academies without the resources to purchase simple items such as holsters, to veteran SWAT operators who do not have the proper equipment, inhibiting their ability to conduct specialized operations, I’ve seen it all,” he adds.

Agazim continues, “National Police Ammunition will donate a portion of its revenue directly to the charity through its new parent company, Defense Engineering Systems.”

Initially, the charity plans to donate $500 each month to the Miami Dade Police Chiefs Association officer of the month, along with a further $1,000 to the officer of the year.

A website is currently under construction which will allow potential scholarship candidates to apply for student aid, which will be reviewed by the charity’s board. The website will also offer grant applications to agencies for specialized equipment and ammunition needed for additional training.

“Law enforcement has blessed National Police Ammunition over the last nine years,” remarks Agazim.

“I’m excited and grateful,” he adds, “to have the opportunity to give back to their community.”

Erik Agazim’s National Police Ammunition is already heavily involved with a number of local law enforcement charities and associations.

The company currently sponsors the Florida Police Athletic-Activities League, the Michael Callin Memorial Scholarship Fund, and the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund.

The Miami-based ammunition specialists are also proud members of the Miami Dade County Association of Chiefs of Police, the Florida Police Chiefs Association, the Florida Highway Patrol Command Officers Association, and the Florida Sheriffs Association.

What To Do During An In Progress Active Shooter Crisis

As active shooter situations are generally over within 5-15 minutes and often before the arrival of law enforcement officers, individuals must be prepared both physically and mentally to deal with an in progress active shooter situation.

Active shooter incidents are unpredictable and generally evolve quickly: Typically, the immediate deployment of law enforcement is required to stop the shooting and

mitigate the threat. However, many active shooter situations have been stopped by armed citizens or those that are prepared to intervene to stop the threat.

SEMINAR COVERS THE FOLLOWING TOPICS

• Response procedures following our ESCAPE methodology.

• Mindset and mental toughness.

• Profile of an active shooter.

• Fear response and dealing with combat stress.

• Human combative behaviors and rapid threat recognition.

• Responsibilities of managers and staff during an active

shooter crisis.

• What to do when the shooter is in your vicinity.

• Room hardening procedures and how to barricade.

• Procedures to disrupt or incapacitate the shooter.

• How to respond when Law Enforcement and first responders arrive.

• Evacuation procedures and what you can do to assist.

• Casualty care and life saving techniques.

WHAT IS AN ACTIVE SHOOTER?

The National Tactical Officer’s Association (NTOA) defines active shooter as… “one or more subjects who participate in a random or systematic shooting spree, demonstrating their intent to continuously harm others. An active shooter’s overriding objective appears to be that of mass murder, rather than criminal conduct such as robbery kidnapping, etc.”

DON’T BE A VICTIM

This seminar explains in detail the appropriate response protocol that should be used during an in progress active shooter crisis in the workplace.

Minneapolis PD Selected OSS Suppressors for Super Bowl Security

Monday, February 12th, 2018

Millcreek UT – OSS Suppressors LLC is proud to announce the City of Minneapolis Police Department contracted and issued HX-QD 556k and HX-QD 762 suppressors to four Metro SWAT Warrant and Sniper teams.  These teams were responsible for securing one of the world’s major sporting events recently held in their city – Super Bowl LII.

The selection of OSS was the culmination of an extensive 4-month evaluation conducted by the Minneapolis Police Department and assisted by Sentinel MN, a leading Twin Cities source of specialized firearms, optics and suppressors for law enforcement.

3FE0A8ED-EA28-4DB8-BBAE-32B2556AB3F7

Sentinel MN owner Tom Huot said “our approach takes all the hype out of the process and puts quality equipment in the hands of the officers. Starting last summer, we presented a range of suppressors from over 10 manufacturers and let the teams test performance with thousands rounds.”

72137B69-BDCC-44FC-8114-875340BDA3D5

“We had evaluated suppressors a few at a time in the past,” said Mark Kaspszak, Minneapolis PD SWAT sniper, “and we had the opportunity to finally take a hard look at most of the major brands head to head and compare factors like sound suppression, muzzle flash, blowback, weight/length, accuracy impact, attachment mechanism, and how the suppressors impacted our SBR and precision rifles.  After all that, leaders for both the Sniper teams and our Warrant teams unanimously selected OSS as the suppressor we wanted on our guns.”

“I want to thank Tom and Sentinel MN for their extensive work and professional approach” said Chris Estadt, VP of Marketing and Sales. “The Minneapolis SWAT officers were able to test the best suppressors on the market, and to individually experience the advantages of OSS’s patented Flow-Through™ technology and our new HELIX-QD 5.56 and 7.62 suppressors. We’re proud of the public servants who are dedicated to keeping our communities safe,” he said, “and we’re excited that more and more law enforcement professionals are experiencing the unmatched advantages of OSS.”
