MPD switching from Glock to Smith & Wesson

Due to continuing malfunctions with the Glock G-22, including a stovepipe jam during an incident when an officer was shot, the Milwaukee Police Department has decided to switch over to the Smith & Wesson M&P .40. Bruce has the details, including a copy of the memo regarding the switching from Glock to S&W.

This comes about a week after the MPD announced that they would switch from shotguns to new Smith & Wesson "patrol rifles," a semi-automatic version of the M-4.

Interestingly, these new weapons will come at no cost to the MPD.
