Remington Arms announces the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department recently purchased an additional 300 Remington Model 870 shotguns designated specifically for use in their "less-thanlethal" program.
The shotguns were custom designed by the Sheriff's Department, and built by Remington's Law Enforcement Custom Build Division. They have brightly colored buttstocks for easy identification as "less-than-lethal."
Remington also announces the Mississippi Highway Patrol has again chosen the Remington Model 870 Police Magnum as the department's issued shotgun.
"We are proud to say that all of our 600 troopers now have a Model 870 shotgun in their patrol car, and everybody is certified with it. No need for cross training, since every trooper now has the same shotgun," said Phillip Hemphill, of the Mississippi Highway Patrol.
