SANATOGA PA – Lower Pottsgrove police have upgraded their weapons.
The department recently purchased new sidearms for its officers, in the form of 22 Glock 40-caliber Model 22 pistols, and four Glock Model 23s, Chief Michael Foltz reported earlier this month to the Board of Commissioners. All also were outfitted with new light systems and accompanying holsters. The sidearms traded in by the department were nearly 10 years old, Foltz added.
The weapons represented a total cost of $11,570, Foltz noted, but the trade-in value of 21 sidearms effectively lowered the expense to $5,730.
The new sidearms also required 2-1/2 hours of department overtime for training purposes, according to the chief, at a cost of $169.
