About
About Us

We are far more than a few websites, far more than a few salesmen on the streets, far more than a retail store. Witmer Public Safety Group is one of the nation’s leading multi-channel distributors providing top quality equipment, training, service and support after the sale. We have built our company to fully meet the needs of public safety professionals across the country and around the globe.

The explosive growth of Witmer Public Safety Group, Inc. began in 1996 when firefighter Jim Witmer, his brother Greg Witmer and their family launched one of the first online stores specifically for public safety professionals. Before long they changed the name to better reflect their growing list of available products. At the same time the company re-wrote the way public safety professionals bought their gear. Today the number of specialized web sites continues to grow along with their ever-expanding gateway to thousands of items from hundreds of manufacturers. 

Thanks to our loyal customers and very positive relationships with the companies we represent, Witmer Public Safety Group continues to deliver on the company motto of Equipping Heroes™ on a daily basis. Our Professional Sales and Support Teams are dedicated to making your life easier and safer. 

As we grow to serve you better, we build on solid roots. Our staff is made up of many active or retired firefighters, policemen, EMTs and Paramedics. That’s how we operate…and it’s how we live. We’re colleagues. We’re family. We understand your needs. We know our products. And we’ll never compromise on quality. As always, we’re prepared to meet or exceed your high expectations in every way.
