Does anyone have a good reliable link to a list of duty weapons for major police departments, federal agencies, sheriff's departments and the like? Or if you are a LEO or the like, please share what your agency uses, and if personal preference and/or BUG is allowed.
A witty saying proves nothing.

my Federal Agency issues Sig P228/229s, in 9mm. We issue our contractors Glock 19s. We also have (and, depending on our specific job, must be qualified on) Beretta 92s (9mm), S&W 19s (.357Mag), and Ruger SP101s (.38Spl), as well as the Glock.
We have no lee-way in duty guns, and may not (as of yet) carry BUGs on-duty, though this may be changing. I would also be interested in a data base of who uses what...
A man fires a rifle for many years, and he goes to war. And afterward he turns the rifle in at the armory, and he believes he's finished with the rifle. But no matter what else he might do with his hands - love a woman, build a house, change his son's diaper - his hands remember the rifle.

My agency issues Sig p226, but you can buy your own from approved list.
All BUG's .380 or above, no revolvers

NJSP has Sig 226's in 9mm.... which replaced their old HK P7's.
I'm not sure about anyone in Indiana yet. I know a bunch of the officers that I dealt with while working EMS in NJ had Glocks in various flavors (not the type of question you ask while working on a patient...)
At least one of the departments that deals with my buddy who runs a public safety outfitting shop (EMS, LEO, FD, etc) carries HK USP's (the full size model) not sure on caliber though.

we are issued smith 4006 older ones
but can buy our but has to be .40, 4" or longer barrel, and a double action only, with tritium nite sites
(we had our choice of Sig 226, sig 229, XD, Glock 22,23, Smith M&P, Kimbers new one, basically any .40 DA 4")
I chose a glock 23 (because i had it already)

We have our choice of any Sig we want, in what caliber we want. I chose the 220R. I am working a spec'l detail at the moment, so I carry whatever I want. Most often its a G23 sometimes a 228, a Kahr PM9 or a J Frame. I do have a select fire 11.5" AR issued as well, but I rarely have that out.
BUGs are dont ask dont tell, but off duty must be .380 or better. They have to be a good make and are purchased by the officer.

How come contractors always get the inferior equipment?

The local agencies I work with carry the following:
Agency 1: Beretta PX4 .40
Agency 2: Beretta 96 .40
Agency 3: SigArms P226 9mm
Agency 4: Glock 22 .40
Agency 5: Glock 22 .40
Agency 6: Beretta 92F 9mm
Agency 7: Glock 22 .40
Of those seven agencies, two permit BUGs. Both of those issue the Glock 22, and the BUG of preference is the G27.

The sheriff's dept. I do medic work for you can have a choice Glock 22 or 23. The sheriff carries G-22 in uniform or G-27 on plain clothes days. Duty guns can be issued but dept. keeps gun if you leave so most deputies buy their guns outright getting officers discount price from supplier.
BUG's are allowed, personally bought and some are G-27's. Some deputies seem to be going to Kel-Tec P3AT's recently and stuff them in various places. I know one has Colt .380 and one has PPK/s .380 but I'm guessing majority of deputies don't carry BUG's. I may be mistaken about that though.
I use G-23 and XD9sc BUG when riding with them on patrol or as medic on the entry team.
For some reason Sheriff doesn't want me carrying any of my 1911's but he did let me use my sheriff's ID to get officers discount on my XD9sc. He doesn't usually do that for the other deputies BUG's. I wrote him a personal thank you letter for allowing me to do that.
