Owasso police have gotten a private donation to buy precision rifles for the police force.
Police say they got a $30,000 donation from the Owens family and will use the money to purchase AR-15 rifles for the police department. Police say everyone on the force will get one of the rifles.
Police say the rifles will help officers have a level of accuracy they didn’t have before. The department planned on purchasing the rifles, but say now the money won’t have to come from their annual budget.
