COMPANY NAME CHANGE OF STI 2011 PISTOL TO STACCATO

In April 2018, the Los Angeles Police Department approved the testing of the Strayer-Trip Inc. (STI) 2011 pistols for use on and off duty. On August 1,2018, a Notice was published approving the STI 2011 pistols for Department use. During 2019, STI produced pistols with the same approved Department specifications for the 2011 model, but in the 2011 Staccato line for law enforcement.

On May 26, 2020, STI rebranded the name of their company to Staccato. The specifications of the Staccato 2011 pistols remain the same as the STI 2011 models tested by the Department in 2018. Therefore, the Staccato 2011 line of pistols are approved.

If you have any questions regarding this Notice, please contact Sergeant II Salvatore De Bella, Equipment Assessment and Evaluation Coordinator, Personnel and Training Bureau, at (213) 486-7090.
