Smith & Wesson announced that Los Angeles County Sherriff's Department will be getting M&P pistol for duty. The guns from this 5-year contract will be used to replace current non-S&W duty guns.
This is not the first time LASD is using M&Ps. A few years ago, they were adopting M&P. However there were some problems during academy when a barrel broke. There were some rumors that someone did a dremel job on the barrel and that lead to problems.
