PD gets new .45s at no cost
Groveland one of the first departments in the state to switch to powerful .45s
The Daily News of Newburyport
GROVELAND, N.Y. — It may not be the biggest police department around, but Groveland’s law enforcement officers have taken the lead in arming themselves with the latest in powerful handguns.
They said they weren’t looking to make a change from their nearly 10-year-old Glock .40 caliber semi-automatic pistols, but the deal they were offered on the larger .45 caliber weapon was too good to pass up. And, it didn’t cost the town any money, they said.
“We are the first police department in the area to do this and one of very few in the entire state,” police Chief Robert Kirmeleciwz said. “Anytime that I can obtain new and better equipment for state of the art technology for my officers, at minimal cost to the town, I seize the opportunity. This is one of those times.”
