The National Institute of Justice has requested for public feedback on a published draft document regarding generic baseline security specifications for law enforcement service pistols with additional safety technology.
A notice posted Friday on the Federal Register pointed to a joint report by the Justice Department, Department of Homeland Security and Defense Department that outlined a strategy to accelerate gun safety technology deployment.
The report asked help from law enforcement agencies to develop baseline specifications that indicate operational requirements for the manufacturers of firearms equipped with gun safety technology.
The Federal Register notice added that DOJ and DHS have assembled an NIJ-led working group of firearms technology experts to help identify operational needs and prepare the draft document on generic baseline specifications for law enforcement service pistols.
Comments to the document will be accepted through Sept. 13.
