Add Clearwater Police Dept (Clearwater, Florida) to that list also. Guns are already in as well as holsters and will be getting them in two weeks.

Given time I am sure that most departments that have an option list of guns will allow the M&P - We will likely add them to our list soon - and I have a T/E M&P enroute to let some of our officers test. We're currently issuing the SIG in 40 but I'd like to see us find another general issue pistol. The M&P might be a great option.

I talked to a Durham, NC officer that told me that they are looking at the M&P also. They currently issue the S&W 4506 and the SW99, neither of which are in production anymore. He didn't mention what chambering they are looking at, but if I had to guess I would be .40. There seems to be a perception in law enforcement that the .40S&W is easier to shoot well than the .45ACP. I can't tell you the number of times I have heard from various powers-that-be in LE that we can't issue .45ACP pistols because they are too hard to shoot. In my opinion the .40S&W is harder to shoot well than the .45ACP, and I am far from alone in that opinion.
It makes sense that Raleigh would be looking at the M&P also. They currently issue the 4566 or 4506, I'm not sure which. They replaced S&W 10mm pistols about seven years ago (the 1076 I think). Again, the 4566 and 4506 are out of production, and 4566TSWs would still mean purchasing new holsters, and the M&P is a lot cheaper than a 4566TSW.
I'm very happy with my issued M&P40. It is a lot softer shooting than any other .40 I have shot (except maybe the all steel 4006), but I still wish it was a .45ACP. I wish the M&P45 would hurry up and appear at the local cop shop, as it is my next planned purchase.

It is optional for some of the City of Chesapeake Va's depts. I know that some of
Chesapeake's SWAT carry M&P .40's.
The S&W web site news background reports list who is purchasing M&P's.

Lapeer Co. Sheriff's Dept. Lapeer, Mi.
Dec, 2006. Changed over to M&P 40's. Road Patrol, Corrections and Court, all have 40 cal. issued. Noone has any complaints. Everyone is happy with the M&P 40. Alot of us are waiting for the new 45 cal. to hit the market. Some have even gone to the compact 40.cal and 9mm for off duty carry.
S&W rep came to Dept. and had a day long class on take downs and repairs. Good class. Brought all the models for demo.
Great Gun S&W, hurry with the 45.

My LGS, a former police armorer, said that the Providence RI Police Dept. is approving the M&P for carry. Although approved, I am not sure if they are actively issuing them.

It sounds like a lot of departments are making the switch, But the military needs to jump on that train as well we still use those 10 year old beretta's you have a better chance throwing it at the enemy than the One shot One Kill philosphy!! :!: :!:

I agree 100%. I like my 40 and my Sigma 40F, but I can't wait to get a M&P45!!!
.45ACP and .357mag are the still the two best in my book for LE.

Two State Police Agencies
The New Mexico State Police recently selected the M&P 40 for issue to replace their glunks... delivery expected in Sept.
Yesterday heard New Hampshire has adopted the M&P 40 for State Police/Highway Patrol as well as the Game and Wildlife officers.
