The Indiana State Police have adopted the SIG Sauer P365 as the back-up duty firearm for their full complement of troopers. The statewide law-enforcement agency is comprised of more than 1,250 troopers across fourteen districts throughout the state of Indiana. 

“The SIG Sauer P365 gives Indiana State Police Troopers primary carry capabilities in a sub-compact configuration,” began Lt. Col. Matt Bilkey, assistant chief of staff operations for the Indiana State Police. He continued, “Its high level of accuracy, small size and high round capacity make it a perfect firearm for our officers, both on and off duty, and is a great counterpart to our primary duty firearm: the SIG Sauer P227.”

The SIG P365, chambered in 9 mm Luger, features a modified double-stack magazine for a 10+1 capacity, with 12-round factory-made magazines available for a 13-round capacity.

“It’s a tremendous honor for SIG Sauer to continue to support the Indiana State Police with the addition of the P365 pistol as their back-up duty firearm,” added Tom Jankiewicz, executive vice president of law enforcement sales. “The micro-compact P365 pistol gives the Indiana State Troopers full-size capacity with little additional weight or bulk added to their patrol equipment, allowing them to easily maneuver as they carry out their duties to protect and serve the citizens of Indiana.”
