We sell them and more importantly have them for DEMO.
Issue are; they lay down a good bit of fire quickly BUT what for.
They were originally made for VIP/Executive protection. A good way to lay down some quick fire and MOVE OUT.
Departments can own these with no special license from the ATF, it's a just a form 5 or form 10 away. Individual officers can not own them but they can be issued them.
Department cost of a Glock 18 is $507. Due to construction diferences, the slide of an 18 will not fit on other guns, the rails are thicker on the 18.
Here are a couple videos:
The first is a first time shooter with the 18, you can see why they don't hand these out to everyone.

For a civilian to own and NFA firearm, they must pay a transfer tax of either $5 (AOW) or $200 (any other NFA device).
Departments DO NOT pay the tax.
You have to pay taxes to the ATF to own a gun?
