Pretty well spread out, but I would say 9mm (issue) then 45 then 40. The other agencies around here are 40.

I see 9mm is quite in use. My perception was that it would be .40

We have seen results that our current issued 9mm ammo has better real life ballistic performance than the .45acp we issue. Hard to belive but absolutely true. I'm forbidden from going into the details of those results but I have seen the performance of our 9mm and .45acp ammo first hand and it works...works good! I know I want what is going to work the best and I carry the 9mm.

Any info about .40 comparing to those?

It would be great if you could share what duty ammo and what barrel length (duty arm)?

We can carry almost anything we want in 9/40/45, and over half our officers are carrying G21. Another 25% are carrying .45 1911's, HK's etc. So, 75% .45 at least.

We can only carry 9mm or 45acp. Don't have any info on the 40.

Eureka PD requires that a Glock 22 is carried. No options. Being a G23, .40 S&W is of course the caliber.

In handi-guns, .40 & .45; about evenly split.
