LAPD Authorizes Benelli M4 Tactical Shotgun For Duty Use

February 04, 2009  | 


The Los Angeles Police Department has authorized the use of the Benelli M4 tactical shotgun for duty use by officers, Beretta USA has announced.

After two years of testing, the LAPD approved the Benelli M4, a semi-automatic entry-type weapon. The LAPD has over 9,800 sworn officers and is the third largest police agency in the country.

"It's quite an honor to have the Los Angeles Police Department now using the Benelli M4 shotgun on duty and off duty," said Patrick McDonald, VP of law enforcement sales. "Beretta continues to gain the confidence of law enforcement agencies across the country as the total solution provider of products to protect our officers and our communities."

The Benelli M4 semi-automatic shotgun is capable of handling a variety of shot-shell loads — from the lightest training rounds to the heaviest duty rounds. No manual operation of the M4 is required to cycle the rounds.

The M4 is manufactured by Benelli, a Beretta Holding Group company. The Benelli M4 is distributed by Beretta U.S.A. Corp. for law enforcement agencies in the U.S. and is also a standard-issue weapon used by U.S. Marine Corps troops in Iraq and Afghanistan.
