Indianapolis officers getting new Glocks in 2008
By Vic Ryckaert
INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. — The Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department will spend about $150,000 next year to replace aging handguns for about 1,200 of its officers.
The department is replacing the .40-caliber Glock 22 handguns with newer models of the same weapon.
"With the age and the number of rounds fired through them, they begin to have problems," said Capt. Robert Holt, commander of the department's training academy. "We want to make sure the weapons our officers carry are dependable and they can count on them when they need them."
