SMYRNA, Ga.-(Ammoland.com)- GLOCK, Inc. is excited to welcome Hancock County Sheriff’s Office to the GLOCK family.

Hancock County Sheriff’s Department is located in Ellsworth, Maine and has responsibility for Acadia National Park. After testing and evaluation, they will be replacing their Sig Sauer duty pistols with the GLOCK 45. “We are excited to put the new pistols into service,” said Sheriff Scott Kane.

“We take the safety of our deputies and the citizens we serve very seriously. We were seeking a duty weapon that could not be matched for reliability under the toughest conditions and we believe we have found that in the G45,” said Sheriff Scott Kane.

The GLOCK 45 made its debut at The 2018 International Association of Chiefs of Police (IACP) Conference in October 2018 as a new addition to the 9X19 family. The G45 incorporates elements of the 5th Generation of GLOCK pistols including a smoother trigger pull, an enhanced frame texture for sure handling, a reversible magazine catch, ambidextrous slide-stop lever, the Modular Backstrap System (MBS) for individual adjustability and the incredibly accurate, match-grade GLOCK Marksman Barrel (GMB). The G45 combines the fast handling of the GLOCK 19 compact-sized slide with the full-size frame as a compact Crossover.

“We are excited to welcome Hancock County Sheriff’s Department to our growing GLOCK family,” said GLOCK, Inc. VP Josh Dorsey. “We are honored that they selected GLOCK as their trusted duty pistol and look forward to a long relationship of providing quality pistols and exceptional customer service to the department.”

It’s NOT shoot to kill
It is shoot to stop the actions of the aggressor, if that means you have to kill him so be it.
if you’re ever unfortunate enough to have to draw your weapon and use it against another person the words you use can either land you in jail or save your butt choose your words carefully

“We take the safety of our deputies and the citizens we serve very seriously.” If that were the case, you wouldn’t be arming your deputies with Glocks. More law enforcement officers accidentally shoot THEMSELVES with Glocks than ALL OTHER pistol models, combined, due to the lack of a sufficient, manual safety. I’ve sold many Sigs and Springfield XD’s to deputies, officers, and security professionals who wanted something safer than a Glock, but wanted to maintain accuracy and magazine capacity. Say that the Glocks were cheaper… lighter… the magazines were more available – whatever – just don’t lie and say it… Read more »

Ever wonder why reloaders steer clear of empty brass shot through a Glock? They (GLOCK) use what is known as an unsupported chamber (really) which leaves a BULGE in the casing, rendering it unfit to reload. I found this out the hard way, by trying to reload once fired brass, from my gun range left by LEA, who use GLOCKS. If resized in standard dies, they will most likely never fit or fire in another pistol of the same caliber. The only fix, is to buy a special die (make sure it is the carbide one) where you run the… Read more »

You have to wonder how many free glocks the chief got or how many free meals. No one goes from a metal framed gun to a polymer framed gun especially when the metal framed gun has been proven to be very reliable. Competition is what keeps the products improving.

Agreed! Glock LE reps will do almost anything to get a department to switch! I know – I’ve worked with them!

After stepping up to a Sig, I would never go back!
Apparently they didn’t read the recent article where they ran over 30,000 rounds through a P320 without cleaning with NO issues!!

With the change in the ammunition, the battle strategies have also largely changed. Now, the knights have been replaced by the modern warrior who carries weapons that are increasingly lethal, and a hit of ammo fired from these weapons can deliver serious and impairing, and sometimes fatal impact.

Yeah… I kinda think that “serious, impairing and fatal impacts” are the POINT when you have to fire your duty weapon… It’s “Shoot to Kill”, not “Shoot to Slightly Impair”…
