About Us

Company Profile

Defender Supply is the one stop shop for Law Enforcement Ready-to-Roll vehicle packages. We’ve got what it takes to be your preferred parts supplier and up-fit facility. We are Master Distributors for all major emergency equipment manufacturers, allowing us to meet your needs and maximize your budget.

All police vehicle equipment installations are provided by our Certified Master Technicians, ensuring worry-free operation. For your convenience, we have listed Ready-To-Roll packages for some of our most popular law enforcement vehicle configurations. Our easy to use system allows you to take delivery of a vehicle, insert the key, and hit the streets. Every package can be altered and customized to fit your department’s specific needs including radios, graphics, and paint schemes. It’s simple: regardless of your needs, we can do it.

Defender Supply’s mission is to help law enforcement and public safety agencies reach their maximum potential by providing the highest quality turnkey police vehicle packages and police equipment. We pride ourselves on competitive pricing, one stop shop convenience, and best in class customer service. We don’t care about being the biggest. We care about being the best.

The Defender Supply Difference

What makes Defender Supply different than other upfit and law enforcement supply companies? We are focused on customer service throughout the process; even after the cars are delivered. To us, that means providing the customer with the highest quality build on every job, big or small.

Quality Is Free

Our complete understanding of vehicle dynamics and operating systems allows us to design and up-fit police vehicles to your specifications. Our Certified Master Mechanics have a complete understanding of police vehicle operating systems and the performance effects of optional emergency equipment, greatly reducing the risk of build errors and costly down time.

We Understand Your Needs

As the premier emergency vehicle provider in the United States, our industry experience gives us a unique advantage in maximizing budget dollars and building cost effective law enforcement and security fleets.

Top Grade Installation

The quality of our installation begins well before the technician starts the build. We continually review the build beginning with the first contact with the customer to make sure that the unit is to the customer’s exact specifications, that the equipment is designed to fit the vehicle itself, and that all the items will function with one another before any work is performed. Once the up-fit is complete, the technician signs off on the work order and then the up-fit is reviewed and signed off on by a QA director (a group of people that we have designated as having the experience necessary to ensure the vehicle is built per the specifications of the work order and with quality above expectations).

Quality Control

Quality Control is extremely important and is a primary avenue for growing our business. We have found that word of mouth in the public safety industry is very powerful and that our customers are passionate about their vehicles and the equipment installed in them. In the rare instance an issue arises with the work we have completed on a vehicle, the technician who installed the equipment in the vehicle is responsible for the warranty of their work, hence increasing their interest in getting the vehicle up-fit right the first time, every time. We take the warranty of our work very seriously and do everything in our power to quickly solve any issues with our work before it leaves our facility.

Meet Our Team

Through our people, Defender Supply has established itself as a respected and progressive group in a very competitive industry. We have proved through the years that it is possible to combine a personal touch sales effort with a quality driven installation that concludes with the ultimate goal of complete customer satisfaction. Our technicians are all either EVT Certified or are in the process of working towards certification. Each Technician takes complete ownership of their builds. This responsibility covers not only the visual aesthetics of the completed installation but the unseen workability of each and every component. We understand the importance of building tools for the law enforcement profession. You, as the customer, have a job to do and your tool of choice should never alter your ability to complete the task safely and effectively.
