Phoenix Approves Plan to Spend Up to $750,000 on Firearms for PD

December 06, 2018  | 

The Phoenix City Council voted unanimously to spend up to $750,000 on Glock firearms and replacement parts for its police department during a sometimes raucous meeting Wednesday, reports KTAR.

The vote came after a parade of public commenters, most of whom spoke against the plan. Many said they wanted money spent on better training instead of weapons.

“This is to outfit our new employees with equipment that they need to do the job that they do as well as to repair any of the other weapons systems that we have,” Phoenix Police Chief Jeri Williams said during discussions before the vote.

According to the agenda, the plan also included the opportunity to trade in used firearms for $225 each, which could potentially save the city up to $139,500.
