I am not an LEO, but I did have a glock 23 with a trijicon RMR for a while. The dots are very accurate and sure help with aging eyes.

BUT if you are the slightest bit ODC then the dot might not be for you. The slightest scratch or bit of dirt on the RMR window would throw me for a loop, I would want to focus on the damn piece of dirt or water spot and not the red dot. I was constantly having to keep the window glass clean, what a pain in the ass.

The RMR is a great sight, if you can get past debris or scratches on the glass then go for it.

For me, I will wait until the Aimpoint sealed sight becomes available before I maybe try a dot on a pistol again.
