Asset Trading Program (ATP)

Does your agency have surplus equipment or seized, forfeited assets? I'm talking about weapons, such as pistols, shotguns or rifles. Ammunition, maybe your department has changed weapons to a different caliber from what you use to carry, and the old ammo is just sitting in your armory. Do you have any Tasers and holsters that you are not using anymore? How about vehicles, boats or tactical vehicles? We are even interested if you have airplanes or helicopters.

With GTI's Asset Trading Program, we are interested in all of the above equipment in exchange for attending our training courses or the purchase of new equipment that you might need, with your specifications. Please give us a call or an email and let's talk about what you would like to trade.
