Well I work with the G-Town PD quite alot. I work a Town north of them on I-45. I have several friends employed there. The first year in the Department they are required to carry the issued Glock 17 9mm, unless that has changed. After the first year they can use their own weapons. One friend of mine carries a Colt Delt Elite 10mm regulary. The 1911 is alive and well but somewhat rare in Galveston.
