LAPD Bans Certain Holsters Due to Negligent Discharge Concerns

Recommended Posts

The trials and tribulations of the controversial BlackHawk Serpa holster continue as the Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD) has officially banned its use by its officers.



According to Soldier Systems, a department-wide memo was circulated on June 8, 2017 that said the LAPD “has determined that the BlackHawk SERPA holster, and ALL auto-locking, trigger finger manipulated holsters are immediately disapproved for usage by all department personnel.” Serpa holsters, the LAPD maintains, “violate sound weapon manipulation practices and may increase the likelihood of a negligent discharge.”


The memo was signed by the commanding officer of the Police Sciences and Training Bureau.



The LAPD joins the growing list of departments and organizations that have banned or discourage the BlackHawk Serpa from use due to safety concerns. That list includes the Federal Law Enforcement Training Center, National Park Service and the U.S. Forest Service, Gunsite Academy, Vickers Tactical, and Kyle Defoor, to name a few.
