Glock is a favorite among concealed carry holders, recreational enthusiasts, and league shooters alike. The group of Glock faithful also includes a significant amount of men and women in blue. In fact, the list continues to grow almost everyday with the Greensboro PD now included.
Glock just recently announced that another significant police department from North Carolina has signed on and put their trust into the newest iteration of Glocks by purchasing the Gen 5. This is the Press Release that Glock put out stating that fact:
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 PD has fully outfitted their department with new duty pistols and is confident in the platform. To expand on this, the Greensboro Chief of Police Wayne Scott had these words to share as well:
The Greensboro Police Department has had a great experience with our recent GLOCK handgun transition. I believe this product works well for our officers and our community.
The Vice President of Glock, Josh Dorsey, also shared his sentiments on the acquisition of the Greensboro PD into their family and the relationship that Glock shares with all law enforcement:
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. 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. Simply stated, the GLOCK focus has been and will remain on those that go in harm’s way as we all understand the vital importance of reliable dependability.
The Greensboro PD is not the first police department to give Glock their business, and they absolutely will not be the last. Congratulations Glock, and thank you to all of the men and women who serve the communities of Greensboro, North Carolina and all law enforcement everywhere!
