2025 State of the Industry Projection Survey Invitation

July 6, 2024
Take our survey about the industry's thoughts on the coming 2025 budget year and how it will affect agencies. Plus, completing the survey gives you a chance to win a pair of Damascus gloves and riot control suit.

OFFICER Media Group is proud to announce, once again, that we are launching our State of the Industry Projection Survey – the only one of its kind in the entire law enforcement community. This year’s projection survey is sponsored by Damascus Gear and the first qualified 500 people who complete 100% of the questions in the survey will receive a pair of Damascus Gloves. All those who complete 100% of the questions, even if not in that first 500 respondents, will be entered to win a complete riot control suit from Damascus Gear.


The data received in the 2025 State of the Industry Projection Survey, when complete, will be compiled into a summary report and made available to all who complete it. It will contain information about what you, the law enforcement community leaders, expect to see from the coming year in the way of growth, challenges, budgets and more. How does the industry expect to be impacted by riots, protests, funding challenges? All data we collect, mine, analyze and share.

We use an online tool, and we estimate that the survey will take you roughly ten to fifteen minutes to complete. The answers are largely multiple choice with a few checkboxes and very few comment boxes (if your answer isn’t already in our list of options).


It IS a thorough and in-depth survey. We request that you take it when you have the time and access to the data for your agency. If you don’t have definitive answers, we’d request that you not make best guesses but get the correct data. Why? So when we issue the summary report, it’s as accurate as we can make it and not based on the SWAG (surgical wild @$$ guess) some folks put in.

Thank you in advance for your time taken and invested to complete the survey. Thank you to our sponsor, Damascus Gear, for providing us the opportunity to give away 500 pair of gloves and a full riot control suits!


Gloves will be distributed and a winner randomly selected for the Damascus riot control suit after the close of the survey. Survey is open from Monday, June 24th through Friday, July 19th, 2024.
