The fundamental Law Enforcement mission profile has undergone drastic changes since the days of Sam Colt's "gun that won the West".
But, right along with these changes, Colt has always had the leading role in developing weapons that meet current threats and requirements. Colt's current law enforcement products have benefited from decades of field and combat experience, state-of-the-art advancements recommended by and with the technical support of the U.S. Government, U.S. Armed Forces, U.S. Law Enforcement Agencies, Colt and other users throughout the world. As a result, Colt's law enforcement products are the most technologically advanced, reliable systems in the world. Moreover, our firearms carry decades of Colt engineering and manufacturing know-how, patents, proprietary processes and research and development experience. At the same time ISO 9000 certification that Colt achieved in 2001 has helped us redefine quality in the world of small arms.
Today, Colt has a complete line of law enforcement products that features the AR-15 series, the combat proven M4 series, 9mm submachine guns, a grenade launcher (non-lethal applications) and a heavy barrel accurized rifle. Furthermore, Colt maintains a staff of professional engineers, armorers and experienced operators who devote themselves to constant improvement of our products. It is through them and our loyal customers that Colt continues to maintain the standard of excellence in small arms.
Selecting the weapon that will gain and maintain the officers' confidence while reducing threats is critical to mission success. The best and most proven weapon in the world should therefore be chosen. Whether patrolling in the jungles of Panama, the deserts of Afghanistan or in our streets, Colt has consistently demonstrated its reliability and utility. For every mission profile or situation, Colt has a weapon that will meet and exceed the requirements of the most demanding officer.
