SMYRNA, Ga. – Nov 12, 2018 GLOCK, Inc. is pleased to announce that Greensboro Police Department in North Carolina has selected GLOCK as their sidearm of choice.
The list of agencies who put their trust in GLOCK pistols is continuing to grow as local and state agencies trade in their current competitor pistols for the newest generation of GLOCKs. Since the development of the commercial version of the GLOCK M pistol used by the FBI, the 5th Generation of GLOCK pistols has been the focus of interest among the majority of the transitioning departments.
The Greensboro Police Department has 700 sworn officers who protect their community of over 290,000 residents. Greensboro recently transitioned from Sig Sauer P320 to the GLOCK 19 Gen5 with Ameriglo BOLD sights.
“The Greensboro Police Department has had a great experience with our recent GLOCK handgun transition, said Greensboro Chief of Police Wayne Scott, “I believe this product works well for our officers and our community.” Greensboro PD has fully outfitted their department with new duty pistols and is confident in the platform.
“GLOCK is proud to welcome the Greensboro Police Department to the GLOCK family and offer continued support to the law enforcement community by providing the next generation of reliability,” stated GLOCK, Inc. VP Josh Dorsey. “The reputation of our pistols, their performance during the demanding agency testing, and our industry leading customer service are the foundation of the partnerships we have with those who protect and serve every day.
