Henry police to get replacement guns, motorcycles

The Henry County Board of Commissioners approved a resolution to replace its police department’s second- and third-generation Glock semi-automatic pistols, and also approved a trade-in of the Motorcycle Unit’s six Harley-Davidson motorcycles. The action came at the board’s Oct. 20 regular meeting. The funds for the pistol replacement are allocated in the Henry County Police Department budget and the transition will occur over a period of months as officers qualify with and are issued the new firearms. The 8-year-old motorcycles will be traded to a company for $40,000, while the county simultaneously enters an interest-free lease-to-own program for six new motorcycles at $5,191.92 per motorcycle per year, after which they will be purchased for one dollar each.
