LE SupplyPRO Executive Summary:
The National Sheriffs’ Association (NSA) is a 501 (c)(4) not-for-profit organization dedicated to serving the Office of Sheriff and its affiliates through law enforcement education, training, information resources. The NSA represents over 3,000 sheriff’s offices nationwide in addition to deputies and other law enforcement, public safety professionals, and concerned citizens.
Through the years, NSA has provided programs for sheriffs, their deputies, chiefs of police, and others in the field of criminal justice to perform their jobs in the best possible manner and to better serve the people of their cities, counties or jurisdictions. NSA works to forge cooperative relationships with local, state, and federal criminal justice professionals across the nation to network and share information about homeland security programs and projects.
NSA and Gearfire, a proven e-commerce technology provider, partnered to create LE SupplyPRO, an instrument towards effective and efficient procurement and administration. We bring a holistic opportunity to modernize the e-procurement process that is a fully integrated and secure online procurement portal. The portal allows sheriffs’ offices nationwide the ability to instantly procure firearms, ammunition, accessories, gear, supplies, equipment, and other products used in the conduct or support of law enforcement and jail operations at nationwide best pricing.
LE SupplyPRO lets authorized agencies and designated personnel procure the products law enforcement needs efficiently, economically, and securely through e-commerce and e-procurement. Taking advantage of the new online mobile economy that is changing every industry, the portal will provide 24/7 “always on” access to ensure sheriffs have complete control and accountability of procurement needs. The ability to cost-efficiently search, find, purchase, and track is the unique factor for law enforcement. LE SupplyPRO intends to leverage the purchasing power of member agencies to achieve price parity across the United States for any size of agency.
In summary, LE SupplyPRO is safe, secure, efficient, and user-friendly, ensuring that each sheriff’s office, and authorized individual, will have at their fingertips the capability to research and purchase, in real time, products that have been selected for distribution from qualified providers. Through LE SupplyPRO, the revenue generated will help support the mission and goals of NSA.
LE SupplyPRO has the unanimous support from NSA executive leadership.
