The innovation of holster retention is one that has saved many police officers’ lives over the last three decades.
“One thing you have to remember—going on a call as a police officer—every call you go to, there’s a gun there. It’s the one you bring,” says Officer Keith Garcia, a 27-year police veteran. It’s a sobering fact worth remembering, because every year officers are killed by their own firearms.
The innovation of holster retention is one that has saved many police officers’ lives over the last three decades. In the early 1980’s, FBI agent Bill Rogers and founder of the Rogers Holster Company designed and created the Model 070 holster (SSII™ holster) for Safariland—the first true duty retention holster in the marketplace. In the years that followed, Safariland has continued to innovate by crafting models of holsters with multiple levels of retention to meet the needs of law enforcement.
