Where Are the Best Places to Buy Police Gear?

In our last article we took a look at what types of gear are normally carried by law enforcement, as well as the details of what they generally have to pay for themselves versus what might be provided or covered by their department. If you’re an officer who needs to outfit him or herself with some of what remains on that list, the next question is where are the best places to buy police equipment. This article will go over several places that you can try, and also dig deeper into our top picks for some particular types of gear. Let’s dig in.

There are several types of police or survival supply stores depending on where you are based, as well as police-specific online retail marketplaces such as Galls, Chief Supply and Cops Plus. Firearms, of course, are sold at various gun shops as well, depending on where in the country or world you are based, and you can also use general large retail stores for some of the gear and accessories. Our top pick, however, is a much bigger household name already and also a place you’ve likely already shopped for various items. I’m talking about Amazon. Why is that? First, it’s among the most trusted and secure brands in online retail (very likely with your credit card already on file) and since their marketplace allows many different sellers to compete, prices are driven way down.

The Amazon category filters on the left sidebar of a search page allow you to narrow by a number of criteria including price and even % saved over retail price, and you can find some truly great deals that you’ll be hard pressed to locate anywhere else. You can quickly see the opinions of many officers who have already bought the product due to Amazon’s industry-leading collection of customer reviews. And perhaps most useful is that if you have any issues with your order, Amazon’s customer service is known to take quick action to fix the situation. Finally, if you are a Primer shopper you get free two day shipping, so you can start to make use of your items quickly. Amazon is an online retail behemoth, and some people might prefer to patronize their smaller local shop, but when you’re looking for selection and savings, it’s tough to beat.

Next, let’s take a look at some of the top brands and models for selected police equipment items.
