Rheinmetall to Supply Germany’s Federal Police with Protective Vest Inserts

Thursday, December 6th, 2018

Rheinmetall has won an order to supply the German Federal Police with ballistic inserts for protective vests.

The framework agreement lasts 36 months and is worth a total of around €10 million. Representing roughly €1 million in sales, a first batch consisting of over 5,000 ballistic inserts will be shipped in spring 2019. The contract encompasses an option for the supply of an additional 36,000 inserts.

Developed and produced by Rheinmetall Ballistic Protection in Krefeld, Germany, the inserts exploit the latest technology in order to achieve high protection at the lowest possible weight. Among the lightest of their kind, these inserts withstand shots fired from an AK-47 assault rifle. As a result, law enforcement officers who find themselves in complex, life-threatening situations are not only well protected, but able to manoeuvre easily as well.

Berlin Police Take Delivery of Rheinmetall Survivor R Special Operations Vehicle

Sunday, November 18th, 2018

Rheinmetall has formally handed over a heavily protected Survivor R special operations vehicle to the Berlin Police Department. Dr Barbara Slowik, Chief of the Berlin Police Department, symbolically handed over the keys to the Operations Directorate, represented by Criminal Investigation Division Director Martin John. This versatile vehicle, ordered as part of a package of counterterrorism measures in late September 2017, is specially configured to meet the needs of the Operations Directorate of the Berlin Police. Berlin follows Saxony as the third German state to equip its police special operators with the Survivor R.

Made by Rheinmetall MAN Military Vehicles, the Survivor R epitomizes Rheinmetall’s commitment to the twin modern imperatives of security and mobility. Developed in cooperation with Austrian special vehicle maker Achleitner, the Survivor R is superbly suited to police SWAT team-type operations. Vehicles of this kind are particularly important in high- risk situations when special operators need to be transported safely to the area of operations, or for evacuating persons from the danger zone.

The Survivor R is based on a high-performance 4×4 MAN truck chassis, outfitted with a steel armour passenger compartment. Capable of reaching a top speed of over 100 km/h, this high-mobility vehicle combines tried-and-tested automotive engineering from large-scale production runs with state-of-the-art force protection technology from Rheinmetall.

Systematic use of civilian off-the-shelf and standard military components results in a sensibly priced vehicle, while simultaneously benefitting from Rheinmetall MAN’s global service and maintenance network. This makes the Survivor R a cost-efficient, easy-to-maintain vehicle with low lifecycle costs and high operational readiness.

Norwegian Police Adopt SIG SAUER P320 X-Series as Standard Service Pistol

Friday, November 9th, 2018

Newington, N.H. (November 8, 2018) – SIG SAUER, Inc. is pleased to announce the Norwegian Police have selected the SIG SAUER P320 X-Series as the standard service pistol for select agencies within their organization. The Norwegian Police is comprised of 8,000 police officers and 8,000 civilian personnel responsible for domestic law enforcement, border control, coordinating search and rescue operations, counter-terrorism, highway patrol, judicial orders, criminal investigation and prosecution.

The Norwegian Police conducted a very demanding, rigorous, and stressful testing protocol that lasted several weeks with firearms from multiple manufacturers. Testing for accuracy, speed, performance and ergonomics was conducted by select agencies within the Norwegian Police with whom the pistol would be in service with, and a third party was used for evaluating technical qualities. In all areas, the SIG SAUER P320 X-Series outperformed the competition, making it the pistol of choice for those agencies.

The P320 X-Series pistol is a modular, striker-fired pistol with a serialized trigger group available in varying grip sizes and adaptable to multiple calibers. The intuitive 3-point takedown requires no trigger pull for disassembly, and safety features include a striker safety, disconnect safety, and optional manual safety.

“We are honored to earn the confidence of the Norwegian Police through their selection of the P320 X-Series as their standard service pistol,” began Ron Cohen, President and CEO of SIG SAUER, Inc. “We initially developed and engineered the P320 pistol for service with the military and law enforcement agencies. Since its introduction, it has been adopted by some of the most elite military and law enforcement agencies across the globe including the U.S. Army as the M17. We are very proud to add the specialized forces of the Norwegian Police to this list of elite agencies, and we look forward to developing and expanding this partnership.”

The SIG SAUER P320 X-Series is currently being placed into service with select agencies within the Norwegian Police.

Newington, N.H. (October 25, 2018) – SIG SAUER, Inc. is proud to announce the Sumter Police Department in Sumter, South Carolina has adopted both the SIG SAUER P320, and the P365 pistols, chambered in 9mm, as their official duty pistols.

The Sumter Police Department is a full-service law enforcement agency comprised of seven divisions with 120 sworn officers protecting over 40,000 citizens.

“The decision for us to transition from our GLOCK pistols to a complete SIG SAUER system was based on quality, performance, and safety. In testing we put the P320 and the P365 through the paces and, quite impressively, they both performed beyond expectations throughout our rugged testing requirements,” said Captain Michael Evans, Support Services, Sumter Police Department.

“Additionally, the modularity of the P320 allows our officers to choose a grip based on comfort without the addition of bulky backstraps, and we are really seeing the benefits of this feature in higher qualifying scores,” said Evans. “As for our detectives, the P365 is the perfect pistol because of the small size and high-capacity which makes it easy to conceal without sacrificing rounds. The P365 will also be placed into service as our agency issued backup firearm to replace the current GLOCK 43.”

The SIG SAUER P320 is a modular, striker-fired pistol available in full-size, carry, compact, and subcompact sizing. The serialized trigger group makes the P320 adaptable to multiple caliber, size, and grip options. The P320 is available in 9mm, .357SIG, 40S&W, and .45ACP, with a choice of contrast, or SIGLITE Night Sights. The intuitive 3-point takedown requires no trigger pull for disassembly, and safety features include a striker safety, disconnect safety, and optional manual safety.

The SIG SAUER P365 is an everyday, concealed carry pistol. This high capacity micro-compact pistol is smaller and lighter than other pistols in its class. It features a high-capacity, patented modified double-stack magazine for a 10+1 full-size capacity, with 12-round factory made magazines available for 13-round capacity.

“The Sumter Police Department is our first agency to simultaneously adopt both the P320 and the P365 pistols as their official duty firearms and we could not be more excited about it,” added Tom Jankiewicz, Executive Vice President, law Enforcement Sales, SIG SAUER, Inc. “The P320 features unprecedented modularity and safety, and the P365 truly offers the ultimate in concealment combined with a full-size carry capacity. The features of both of these pistols is very desirable to law enforcement agencies, and we could not be more pleased to have them recognized by the men and women of the Sumter Police Department in their choice to transition to SIG SAUER.”
