NEWINGTON, N.H. --(  SIG SAUER is pleased to announce that the New Jersey State Police have selected the P229 Enhanced Elite in 9mm as its new duty pistol.

For the past 14 years, the New Jersey State Police have carried the P228 in 9mm. The decision to remain with SIG SAUER was based on the long track record of reliability, accuracy, and durability, as tested by troopers in the field.

The P229 Enhanced Elite maintains that legacy, but adds the one-piece enhanced ergonomic grip, which provides a better fit for a wider range of hands.

“We are pleased to continue to provide the duty pistol carried by the men and women of the New Jersey State Police, said Tom Jankiewicz, SIG SAUER Executive Director of Law Enforcement Sales.

“The agency has been a valued member of the SIG Law Enforcement community for over a decade. We look forward to another decade of service with their new P229s.”

The New Jersey State Police will take delivery of 2,800 P229 Enhanced Elite pistols.

Founded in 1921, the NJSP patrol is “committed to protect, preserve and safeguard the constitutional and civil rights of all citizens through impartial and courteous law enforcement with integrity and professionalism.”

      Can the average NJ Citizen carry a Sig or any other handgun? No! Until Sig and every other manufacturer stops supplying police in states that restrict the right of self defense to their own citizens things will never change. Let the police live by the same laws and rules as everyone else.

    2. I ended up moving from NJ because over the last 50 years I did not see things getting better, only worse. With the influx of more and more liberals moving in from NYC, the votes are not there. In my State we are on the offense with gun legislation. In NJ they are on the defense trying to minimize the damage each year. Never getting ahead, always a step back.
