The Broken Arrow Police Department has purchased the new RISE Armament Watchman law enforcement rifles for its Special Operations team.

Broken Arrow, in northeastern Oklahoma, is the largest suburb of Tulsa. Broken Arrow has more than 106,000 residents and is the fourth-largest city in the state.

“We’re proud to provide our officers with RISE Armament rifles,” said Sgt. Brad Klingenberg, commander for the department’s Special Operations team. “We are impressed with the rifles’ quality and the engineering behind them. They’re real tack drivers, and the price makes them an incredible value.”

The Watchman from RISE Armament combines the best in functionality, accuracy, dependability, and affordability. The Watchman is chambered .223 Wylde and highly accurate with .223 and 5.56 ammunition.

“RISE Armament’s number-one mission is to make a lasting difference,” said Chris Stratton, Sales Director at RISE Armament. “We launched our law enforcement division to make sure officers and citizens are better protected, so we’re honored we’re able to make that impact so quickly in Broken Arrow, our own community.”

The Watchman is the springboard product for RISE’s new law enforcement division, RISE LE. The division focuses on designing, engineering and manufacturing firearms and other products that meet the specific demands of law enforcement units across the country.
