A duty handgun policy should require that every officer carry a department issued handgun of a particular model and design.  Their should be a selection of handguns and they should be in a variety of calibers.  I support 9mm, .40 caliber, and .45 ACP as police duty handgun calibers.

.380, .38 special, and 357 magnum should be permitted for back up and off duty weapons.  Your standard duty handgun should be available in as many of those calibers as possible.  It should also be adjustable, so that it can be utilized by different size hands.

The Glock series of firearms meets these criteria, but there are others that are also excellent firearms.  The important thing is for your agency to obtain samples of different firearms, check the prices, and find out what works best for your agency; that's what the SGT Says.
