AR15 Style Rifles

From the proposal of the MPA, staff recently authorized the use of personally owned AR15 style rifles. Officers interested in using their own rifles must successfully complete a 40 hour rifle school prior to deploying with their rifle. The next rifle school is scheduled for April 7th thru 10th and is limited to 16 students. Rifles must meet certain specifications and be approved by a Mesa PD rifle armorer prior to attending the school. See the “Authorized Firearms” document under “Authorized Personally Owned Patrol Rifles”. Send all training requests to Training, not the range. Any questions can be directed to the firearms staff @ x2662.
