Through ingenuity and creativity, The Southern Connection Police Supplies creates solutions for civilian vehicles.
One of our distributors is The Southern Connection Police Supplies, located in Ridgeland, Mississippi. They frequently work with FBI and DEA units that use undercover civilian model cars instead of standard police vehicles. Josh Wheeler, Shop Manager at The Southern Connection, custom fabricates his own components to work with Estes AWS products.
“If a client requests an installation in a non-standard vehicle, I’ll find a solution that fits their needs,” Josh says. “These weapon lockers are sized perfectly to make that happen; and it’s not as simple as cutting a wire to break in. It’s more secure. More thought was put into the design. Put simply, it’s a superior product and a better value than the competition.”
From Jeep Cherokee to Hyundai Santa Fe Sport and more
Josh has custom installed the Estes AWS Weapon Locker in a Toyota Land
Cruiser, Jeep Cherokee, GMC Terrain and Hyundai Santa Fe Sport. He’s also streamlined the automatic release trigger to connect to the trunk wire on the car’s original key fob so that officers only have one key fob to handle.
“With bigger manufacturers, I don’t get first knowledge of what’s happening,” Josh says. “With Estes AWS, I’m never in the dark. I get emails all the time about new products before they’re even released, so I can already have solutions in the works for customers with specific needs.”
