I was on the selection board when my department switched from revolvers to semi-autos. The issue sidearm was a model 65 S&W .357 which had been used in one shooting incident where it worked 100% with one shot. The sheriff felt that we needed to step up to the modern age and with a bank account full of drug dealers seized money the pistols we were to have would cost the tax payers nothing. We evaluated several pistols including S&W, GLOCK, H&K, and Beretta. A neighboring county had bought a batch of Ruger P.45's which they sent all of them back due to continued problems in the first year of issue. The GLOCK was a fine pistol in my opinion but the sheriff wanted an external safety. We after shooting and evaluation chose the H&K USP .45 as the best choice.
