The agency notified us that they were able to place an order for approximately 7,600 weapon lights and holsters to be distributed to the field. They are being sent to the field proportionally based on the size of the sector, number of left-handed vs. right-handed agents, and type of pistol carried.
Trainees graduating from the academy are already issued a weapon light and holster (it comes from a different budget), so this batch of lights/holsters will be distributed by seniority to those agents who request it. The sectors will be soliciting interest in the near future.
For those agents who had a weapon light on the P2000, the same bracket used to attach the light to that pistol will work for our new duty weapon. If your light is still on CBP’s Authorized Equipment List, you can attach it to your new duty pistol.
