PDA

View Full Version : Carbines?

I read some info that indicated USF PD was attempting to procure some surplus rifles from DOD.

What's the status on that?

I would like to see where you "read" that, considering NOTHING has been published anywhere.

I'm the original poster.

If the question seems out of line, then someone should talk to this organization: A.T.A.C. Systems (http://www.atacguns.com/atacsystems/html/main.html).

The question is based on information posted on A.T.A.C. Systems website at http://www.atacguns.com/atacsystems/html/photo5.htm:
The University Of South Florida Police takes delivery of SIMAIR "SIG Type" P229 and Olympic Arms M16A3 for Departmental Training. ATACSYSTEMS SIMAIR weapons where chosen to replace the current primer powered "Simulated munitions" system. They plan on using these training weapons for their in-service, tactical and firearms qualifications and remediation training. The SIMAIR Weapons they selected best mirrored their issue weapons to include the SIGARMS P229 and M16 they received from the Department of Homeland Security. * (emphasis added)

I apologize for citing DOD in the original post. I was working from memory.

So anyhow... what's the status of the "M16... received from Department of Homeland Security"?

Or, does A.T.A.C. Systems have a credibility problem?

I think the person who said "I think people just pull shit out of their ass and post it on here" stuck his foot in his mouth and owes you an apology. Doubt he will though. Sorry you got such a childish response. Anonymity brings out the worst in some people. I believe we did get a shipment of the M16'S, but I don't think were going to use them. I think they are too old and it would cost too much to get them current. But we are looking at getting some type of semi auto rifles to carry in our trunks in the future.

Thanks for the info.

Every agency/department should have rifle caliber carbines in the patrol cars - along with proper training for each officer.

Anything less nowadays is just ignoring the obvious.

you guys use m16's against a guy who have overdue books from the library? what elese would you have to do, except run around after errant kegs left in the roadway

Da hood be all around USF yo! TPD be workin... Gotta keep the gangsters off the college turf they might jack the libary for some high priced books.

From what I've heard, y'all will need those carbines,and tasers. Heard y'all are going to be patrolling the areas outside the campus. The help is welcomed.

11-14-2006, 07:28 AM
Doubt that, but if it happens, higher pay better be welcomed too. If we start patrolling the crap hole areas around the campus, they better raise the pay scale.

11-14-2006, 12:43 PM
We look forward to building a solid relationship with the D1 deputies.

More pay along with more officers. Do you really expect us to be able to handle 46th to 42nd with 3 officers per squad? There is no way.

If we are in fact going to take on more jurisdiction, I agree we need more man power, and better pay. If we are going to double our work load, especially true for the night shifts, why not go to HCSO or TPD to get the compensation in pay for the workload? USF doesnt have competitive yearly pay raises the way it is. They'll probably raise the starting salary again to be competitive, but no decent raises after that, the way it's always been.

The University must relize that in order to retain and recruit people, we must have a decent starting salary and "step" raises. This Department is taking on more work, but I don't see the University wanting to pay for it.

We have a great group of dedicated Officers and the new officers that we are getting are coming in with experience. The potential is there to make us and outstanding Department.

Again, I will say, the way I see it going, is as usaull, the starting pay will be raised to make it competitive, (but in reality a hoax). You get a competitive starting salary, but no competitive pay raises! And, if we are going to take on the some of the eastern half of D1 HCSO, I say we get pay raises for the exta work, or I believe youre going to see more people leave... to HCSO or TPD to get the better pay for the extra work.
