Glock 20g4 for le duty use?

I did try the "search" function= NOTHING. So forgive me if this has been asked before and my search didn't work.

Are there any police agencies carrying or issueing Glock G20's? (any Generation). I ask only because a seasoned CID PA State Trooper who is reliable and respected carries a G20SF. Apparently specialized units in PSP can carry whatever Glock model they want. He explained road troopers (including him, when he has to work the road) have to carry the issue G21G4. Otherwise, they can carry any Glock model as long as they qualify with it. He carries the the G20SF 99% of the time. (Apparently the station commander carries a G33 in plain clothes) We had this discussion in the local Restaurant/Pizzaria. Long story short- We seem to remember there is a State Police agency issued the G20. There are some PD's across the country that issue or authorize G20's. We request you fine forum members chime in on who issues the G20 for duty use. I am contemplating carrying the G20G4 on duty. This comes after some long and hard research and discussion. We issue the G21G4, admin. and detectives carry issue G30SF's and G4's. Patrol is allowed to carry personaly owned Glock 22 and 23 (all Generations) and .40 ammo (duty and practice) is purchased by PD. I need some help and input on carrying the G20G4 on duty and which ammo is best suited for a rural police agency (Bad guys, pigs, deer, and other various animals in the SC PA area). Any info. and discussion will be much appreciated. I want to reach out to the GlockTalk community and hope for mature and to the point discussion. I will be respectfully posting this tread in the LEO and General forums as allowed by the forum moderators. Thank you in advance!!!!!

I don't know specific departments, but I've heard some in Alaska and Canada do. Also some park rangers in bear country carry a Glock 20.

Greenland's special forces, Sirius Patrol, carry the Glock 20 due to polar bears.

The Kentucky Highway Patrol used to use the S&W 10mm.

Marion Virgina PD used to, but I heard they were going to switch to .45 due to ammo costs, don't know if they have yet or not.

I think the G20 is a great choice!

What ammo are you planning to use?

The 10mm is a great cartridge, but for defense against two legged critters, 9mm, 40, and 45 offer cheaper ammo, less recoil, and faster follow up shots.
