LA Police Gear is proud to offer $2.99 Standard Shipping on any order over $99 that is shipping to the lower 48 states. Please note that your order must total $99 AFTER any discounts or coupons are applied, and before shipping charges and taxes are applied. Standard shipping typically takes 3-10 business days and means that your order will ship the most economical method possible (this is automatic and we cannot take requests). These methods can include but are not limited to UPS SurePost, UPS Ground, USPS First Class Mail, and USPS Priority Mail. Tracking information will be provided for Standard Shipping but can be limited and is not always exact. Free or flat rate shipping does not apply to oversized items including but not limited to full size Pelican Cases, Plano Cases, large rifle cases, etc.
We also now offer an easier to use and more customer-friendly returns policy that gives you a full year (365 days) from the order's shipment date to return any new products. Click here for our full returns policy.
The customer is responsible for all shipping costs unless otherwise stated. We primarily ship packages via USPS and UPS methods. Complete orders will typically ship the same business day as long as they are placed before 11 AM PST. While we make every attempt to ship the day of your order, there is no guarantee of this. We also cannot guarantee that your package will arrive in any particular time frame. There are instances where UPS or USPS will delay the shipment of a package due to unforeseen events. If your package has been delayed beyond its scheduled delivery time, we will not be able to refund any shipping charges. Please be aware that UPS and USPS do not have any guarantees as to the delivery time of a ground package.
Free or flat rate shipping offers never apply to oversized items unless specifically stated on that item page. If you use a free or flat rate shipping coupon with a mix of normal items and oversize items we may have to ask for shipping charge due to the excessive cost of shipping large items like rifle bags and Pelican cases.
If a customer is in receipt of merchandise that was drop-shipped (merchandise from one of L.A. Police Gear, Inc.'s distributors shipped directly to the customer), it is the customer's responsibility to contact L.A. Police Gear, Inc. regarding the drop-shipped merchandise. We will not be held liable for issuing refunds and/or exchanges on any drop-shipped merchandise that a customer has chosen to return to the distributor. In addition, L.A. Police Gear, Inc. will not be held liable for any missing or damaged items that the customer has chosen to return to the distributor. Furthermore, if drop-shipped merchandise has been returned to the distributor by the customer, L.A. Police Gear, Inc. reserves the right to end all further assistance and proceedings regarding the customer's order. All drop shipped merchandise must be returned to L. A. Police Gear, not to the manufacturer.
Should a package be lost or damaged, it is the customer's responsibility to report the loss to L.A. Police Gear, Inc. so that the problem may be addressed in a timely manner. Lost UPS packages must be reported within 30 days of the original ship date of the package. Lost USPS packages must be reported within 90 days of the original ship date. The postal service will not allow us to open a USPS claim before 45 days from the original ship date. If you feel that your USPS package has been lost, you must submit your concern in writing so that we may open a claim with the postal service. Please be aware that claims cannot be opened after 90 days, and L.A. Police Gear assumes no responsibility for claims made after these time periods. Please note any shipment that goes out via Standard Shipping or UPS SurePost may not be rerouted by LA Police Gear after the package is in transit.
We accept the four major credit cards as payment methods (Visa, MasterCard, Discover, and American Express) as well as Paypal Checkout.
PayPal Checkout is disabled for use with restricted products (noted in the description of the product) due to Paypal's acceptable use policy. If you wish to use PayPal for part of your order, you will need to place separate orders.
If a customer wishes to mail or fax in an order, he/she is able to do so using the fax/mail in order form. Customers mailing in or faxing in their orders may pay with their credit card, personal check, or U.S. money order. If a personal check is used, it will be deposited before the order is processed and shipped to ensure sufficient funds are available. Therefore, paying with a personal check may delay an order for up to 3 weeks.
A $25.00 bank fee will automatically be incurred on all returned checks. If this occurs, we will attempt to contact you immediately at which time we will require full payment of your account, including the additional bank fees. The account MUST be paid in full via credit card or cashier's check. If the account is NOT paid off in full within a reasonable period of time (30 days from our receipt of the returned check), your account will then be forwarded to our collection agency for further pursuance and additional incurred charges.
Upon placing an order with L.A. Police Gear, Inc., the customers' credit card may be authorized by the credit card company for the full dollar amount of the order. This is not a charge. Although this amount may initially appear as a charge, it is simply an authorization run by the credit card company confirming if the necessary funds are available to process the order. This amount will automatically be removed within two to five business days from the date the order was placed.
L.A. Police Gear, Inc. will not act as an intermediary between the bank and the customer to have this authorization amount removed any earlier than what is required by the respective bank.
All customers attempting to purchase a knife must be 18 years or older. Knives are sharp, and by purchasing the knife from L. A. Police Gear, you understand that it is not designed or intended for use as a weapon. L.A.

Police Gear, Inc. shall have no liability to purchaser or any person whatsoever for any claim, loss, damage or expense arising from handling, use, display, or storage of the knife.
LA Police Gear frequently provides coupons for percentages off your order or a portion of your order. Please note that many brands do not participate in these sales, including 5.11 Tactical, Surefire, Galco, Arc'teryx, Under Armour, Oakley, Bates, and Aimpoint to name a few. The coupon should list what exactly it applies to and what it does not, but this policy serves to notify you of those restrictions as well. Offers for free items are one per customer per offer per week. Customers have attempted to place several orders in an attempt in increase the amount of free promo items they would receive. We do not allow this practice. All free offers and free promo items are while supplies last. If we run out of a free promo item we are not obligated to provide it to you at a later time. If there is a problem with your free promotional item or free shipping you must report it within 30 days of shipment. Please note that promotional items do not have any warranty.
From time to time items will be offered for sale at a reduced price. Customers who bought any item prior to a sale do not have a right to the difference unless stated in the sale. It is our policy that sale prices only apply to new purchase. Sale prices do not apply to orders placed before the sale went into effect and we will not credit customers the difference in price between the sale price and the old price.
Coupons - For some items or combination of purchased items it may appear to the customer that multiple coupons (free shipping or a % or $ amount discount) could apply. We only allow one coupon code to be used per order (i.e., you get free shipping or a discount, but not both). In some situations we may allow two coupons to be applied, but this would have to be pre-approved by a LA Police Gear, Inc customer service manager.
Some items on the site will be clearly labeled indicating they do not get free shipping as most other items in the same brand do. If you disregard this statement and attempt to apply an ineligible coupon to your order we will add shipping charges when we process your order. We will not contact you ahead of time.
Items offered to you in the checkout shopping cart at lower than normal prices do not get free shipping or promotional items. If you pay the regular price for these items you get the free promotional items. If you purchase it at the lower price offered in the shopping cart area (cross-sell offers) you do not get them.
Please be aware that the closeout items are in limited supply. If these items are out of stock on your order, they will be cancelled off of your order without notice in order to expedite the shipment of in stock items.
