The patent-pending Level II security ThumbDrive holster from 5.11 Tactical is reinforced  and features a slick-surface polymer that can hold its shape above 300  degrees Fahrenheit. Designed with a thumb-activated release, the holster  avoids wearing off the finish of a firearm and features a Chop-Block  attachment for added securement. A paddle and belt slide for belts up to  2.25 inches are included, though a Drop-and-Off-Set kit and thigh rig  are available as additional accessories.

The Benchmade Nim Cub II fits most agency policies with its 3.5-inch  blade  and tang that are one piece.  For a solid grip, Benchmade uses  Noryl GTX, which is also tough and  capable of surviving most chemicals  you could come in contact with on  duty. The knife arrives with a range  of blade options, starting with tanto or drop point, and a  plain edge  or a partially serrated edge.

Shots Fired: Tulsa, Okla., The Alley

Tulsa K-9 Officer Steve Downie was summononed to a dark alley about a mile from a fast-food restaurant that had been robbed on June 10, 1996. Officer Downie and Officer Dick Hobson began searching the alley on foot, when muzzle blasts lighted up the area. Suspect Steven Williams, 21, had engaged officers with a shotgun, firing from a darkened corner in front of a steel plate (visible on the right).

2011 Dodge Charger Pursuit

Law enforcement agencies such as the Boise (Idaho) Police Department have opted for Chrysler's 2011 Dodge Charger Pursuit as their new patrol car to replace the Crown Vic being phased out by Ford this year. Rather than introduce a new model, Chrysler opted to upgrade its existing Charger. For the 2011 model year, Chrysler added a Pentastar V-6 engine option and added electronic stability control to the suspension for better handling during higher-speed pursuits. Watch our Charger video feature from the Michigan vehicle testing.

Police Week 2011: Candlelight Vigil

The 2011 candlelight vigil during National Police Week in Washington, D.C., drew up to 20,000 officers, police survivors, dignitaries, and other law enforcement supporters to the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial for the reading of 316 names added to the wall this year. The vigil is organized by the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund (NLEOMF).

Inspirational quotes grace various sections of the 304-foot marble memorial walls. This one, "In Valor There Is Hope," is attributed to Publius (or Gaius) Cornelius Tacitus, a Roman senator and historian.

Police Week 2011: What They Left Behind

To honor their sacrifice, the names of 316 law enforcement officers were engraved onto the marble walls of the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial. The men and women who served their communities as officers, deputies, troopers and agents were honored during National Police Week, and well-wishers came to pay homage to their memories by leaving notes, photos, duty gear and other personal items. View the tributes.

Ted Saraf found a version of his 1968 Dodge Coronet patrol car in Texas, purchasing it via eBay for $2,500. He then spent $32,000 to restore it to its original condition.

Vintage Patrol: 1968 Dodge Coronet

Ted Saraf's strong memories of his rolling office as a young officer with the Pasadena (Calif.) Police Department led him to Texas in 2008 to find and restore the object of his affection—a 1968 Dodge Coronet. Saraf purchased the vehicle via eBay, and set out to lovingly restore it to how he remembered it during its service days in the late 1960s and '70s. Saraf brought the vehicle to the 2011 Police Fleet Expo to show attendees his finished work.

Kimber's Solo Carry has the grip angle of a 1911 and is one of the smaller 9mm pistols on the market.

Kimber Solo Pocket Pistol

The Kimber Solo Carry pocket pistol fits into the palm of your hand and weighs only 17 ounces, making it very easily concealed. What makes the pistol noteworthy is that it's chambered in 9mm rather than .380 ACP or .38 Special. Here are additional photos of the gun, and be sure to read our "Arsenal" review, "Kimber Solo Carry Pistol."

The body styling of Ford's Police Interceptor Utility will be familiar to officers who know the civilian Ford Explorer. The special-service vehicle for officers includes plenty of police-specific features and will compete head-to-head with the Chevy Tahoe SUV.

Ford P.I. Utility

Ford's Police Interceptor Utility is currently a prototype, and the automaker is still refining the vehicle for a scheduled 2012 model-year release. Ford is releasing the special-service vehicle based on the Ford Explorer, which was relaunched for civilians in 2011. However, this pursuit-rated utility has been specially designed for law enforcement. It will be built in Chicago and is equipped with a 3.5-liter V-6 engine rated to deliver at least 280 hp.
