All are options but if it were me I'd go for the Aimpoint.  I say this because of the battery life and proven durability.

Get an aimpoint and change the battery every time you vote for the president. Leave it on setting 7 in the meantime. There.

I went with the Aimpoint Pro.  In the end price did it for me between it and the EOTECH.  I had concerns about a 2MOA dot being easy enough to pick up quickly but it is, I was a bit surprised.  For the money the Pro is the best thing going.  I could use anything I want pretty much since we have basically zero regs on our AR's and that's what I went with.

I have both an Aimpoint M3 with a 2 MOA dot and an Eotech EXPS 3-2. I personally prefer the Eotech reticle over the Aimpoint's but IMO, the Aimpoint is a better patrol rifle optic due to the battery life.

If you are not familiar with each try to find some at a store and look through them. If you cant find any try to atleast check out the reticles via a pic or video or something. I am not real familiar with the 2 Trijicons you mentioned. Aimpoints have a great reputaion and are very good. Personally I dont care for them. If I want that type of red dot I will just buy a Vortex and call it good. On my rifles that I am serious about and need a red dot I always go EoTech. I just really like the circle dot and the big window. Its personal preference. My friend just bought an Aimpoint because of the battery life they have. He loves it, and like I said they are quality optics.

OP,  please try these scopes out before you run it on a patrol carbine.  I've had both the Eotech and Aimpoint on my patrol rifle.  I felt like I was much faster with the Eotech but I dont think it was as fast as I thought.  For patrol the rifle will spend a lot of time in the car so for me the Aimpoint is ideal.  You can leave it on without worrying about the battery dying, so when you jump out on a hot call there's no need to think about pushing a button to turn it on, just go!
