Delta police getting new handguns

The City of Delta will spend close to $87,000 on 120 new handguns with night sights

Delta police officers are getting new handguns at a cost of almost $87,000.

City council approved the purchase of 120 Generation 5 Glock 9-mm handguns for the Delta Police Department on Monday, Jan. 28, awarding the contract of $86,567 to Rampart International.

A staff report said the service lifetime of the Glock .40 and Glock .45-caliber handguns currently in use by DPD officers is between 14 and 18 years. Those were issued in 1995 and 1996 after phasing out the old .38 revolvers, and are nearing the end of their service life.

Staff recommended a full transition to the 9-mm handgun from the larger calibers. The Rampart contract also includes the addition of Trijicon night sights for the Glocks.

The guns will be delivered to the Delta Police Department sometime this spring.
