Lloyd Harbor, New York Police Department Transitions to SIG SAUER P320

NEWINGTON, N.H., (May 22, 2019) –SIG SAUER, Inc. is proud to announce the Lloyd Harbor Police Department has transitioned to the SIG SAUER P320 9mm pistol from the GLOCK 23 as their official duty pistol. Lloyd Harbor Police Department serves the Village of Lloyd Harbor in Huntington, New York.

“Our transition to the SIG SAUER P320 pistol has been seamless, and my officers are impressed with both the superior performance and accuracy of the pistol,” began Chief Thomas Krumpter, Lloyd Harbor Police Department. “Additionally, we appreciate the modularity of the pistol, having the ability to choose a comfortable grip size, and all the safety features of the P320.”

The P320 pistol is a modular, striker-fired pistol, available in full-size, carry, compact, and subcompact sizing. The serialized trigger group makes the P320 adjustable to multiple calibers, size, and grip options. The P320 is available in 9mm, .357SIG, 40S&W, .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.

“We are honored to welcome the officers of the Lloyd Harbor Police Department to the growing number of police agencies adopting the SIG SAUER P320 and supporting their transition,” added Tom Jankiewicz, Executive Vice President Law Enforcement Sales. “We are proud of the positive feedback we have received from Chief Krumpter, and look forward to strengthening our partnership with the officers protecting Lloyd Harbor.”

    Lloyd Harbor has 13 officers, who cares? I actually like the P320 but this isn’t a significant adoption, it’s barely a decent forum group buy. Lol

      They keep score by number of departments. Not by number of pistols purchased. Lloyd Harbor. NYPD. 1 is 1.

      • D Cameron says:

        All its safety features? You mean dropping it and it going off? Superior performance? You mean the slide falling off?

        They should have gotten glock 17 or 19s or m&p’s instead

        • SSD says:

          The 320 never went off unless you dropped it at a negative 60 degree angle from 5 feet, but even that’s been fixed.

          Slide falling off is a new one.

            Supposedly an SRO in Florida just had a P320 discharge last month when bumped while in a holster. The pistol was upgraded.

              Facts we know about the Pasco County Deputy/SRO’s “p320 and older Safariland holster” Unintended Discharge:

              1) P320 had been upgraded
              2) Pasco Deputy had weapon mounted light, and older Safariland holster that has a reputation for gaps big enough that an adult finger can reach down and into the trigger guard- far enough to depress trigger, as happened in a similar incident at a Special Ed school- Harmony Learning Center- in Maplewood MN on Feb 5 2018, with a Maplewood Officer and his Glock/Safariland combo.

              “The officer involved in the incident described the immediate aftermath in his report:

              “I checked my holster again and visibly could not see any way the trigger could have been engaged. I then ran my trigger finger along the lower half of my holster and was able to squeeze my finger to the trigger guard of my duty weapon. This came as a great surprise to me because up until that point, I had complete confidence that this holster would keep my weapon secure under normal operating conditions.”

              The department released its findings to other local law enforcement agencies and organizations so that they could take the appropriate action as well, according to the report.”


            • Amer-Rican says:

              I’ve read at least six different reports on the Pasco County incident, and none of them stated the holstered pistol was “Bumped”. All the reports I’ve read stated that he was simply leaning against a wall and it went off.

              By including the word “bumped”, it gives the false impression the p320 is at fault, when the investigation is still on going and no official cause has been indicated.

              The leading speculation is that something mounted on the wall- fire extinguisher, or a hanging piece of the officer’s gear, a student, or the officer himself, depressed the trigger. But again it’s all speculation.

              Because the officer never claimed anything bumped his holstered p320, it’s very unlikely it went off all by itself with no contact.

        • Amer-Rican says:

          Indianapolis Metro PD and the FBI had slides fall off their gen M Glocks. I follow the gun industry, and Sigs and Glocks in particular, daily, and there’s never been a problem with Sig p320 slides falling off. Whoever you got that from lied to you.

          None of the X-series p320 pistols ever failed the drop test, but Sig upgraded them anyway. The Voluntary Upgrade solves any worries of drop fire by using lower mass striker, trigger, and sear. Sear geometry is also revised.

    • Logan Crooks says:

      I was going to say the same think lo. It’s literally a village. In other news, the Rhode Island State Police switched to the 320 in 9mm last year from the 226 in .357 Sig. They have 230 Troopers.
