I have never witnessed any pistol be so adopted so quickly by as many law enforcement agencies. The only possible exception might be the SIG DAK models. As much as I love my SIG's, I suspect that the M&P series will surpass the DAK if it has not done so already.
"While among the first agencies to place an order for the M&P45, Hartford Police Department joins a growing list of police agencies that have selected firearms from the M&P Series for duty use. Recent additions include the Iowa State Patrol; Harris County Sheriff's Office in Texas; Charles County Police Department in Maryland; New Castle Police Department in Delaware; Berkeley Police Department in California; Kenner Police Department in Louisiana; Rocky Mount Police Department in North Carolina; Brookline Police Department in Massachusetts; Hampden County Sheriff's Office in Massachusetts; and the Jefferson County Sheriff's Office in Wisconsin."
"Since its launch, the M&P pistol series has been selected or approved for carry in over 247 law enforcement agencies, which represent more than 60,000 officers across the United States," said Leland Nichols, President and Chief Operating Officer of Smith & Wesson Corp., a wholly owned subsidiary of Smith & Wesson Holding Corporation.
