I am debating getting one from a local shop but only comes with 1 mag. I know mags are inexpensive. Do agencies normally get supplied 3 mags and do they only trade them in with 1? Or do shops get 3 and only sell you 1 and keep the other 2 for themselves?

Nearly every online trade in deal I have seen states one mag.
But, on the same website, there seems to always be a sale on used mags for those model as well.
That’s probably what they do. Sell extra mags for profit. We just did our second Glock trade in this year (last time was 2008) and I made sure every Glock we traded in had three mags.
AFAIK, they have been selling them with three mags.
Not minority enough!

That’s what they do. But the good news is that used 40 mags are cheap and plentiful. Buds had a bunch a while back, as did AIM surplus. If they are 9mm guns, there’s always Magpul at Brownells for about $10 each of you buy 3.

Recoil Gun Works has a bunch of surplus mags and sells them in bulk, too. For beater mags, fine. For carry, get your own for a bit more peace of mind.
Glocks, even when abused, tend to soldier on. They're not the best of anything, whether it's accuracy or anything else, but they do tend to go and go, and even the surplus pistols tend to be good deals most of the time.
Most of my Glocks have been purchased used. Most of those weren't police trade-ins, but a few are; some were beaten and scratched, others showed zero wear and were probably never issued. Unissued surplus Glocks can be had. When I buy used, I usually look for ones with little or no evident wear, and most of the time the ones I get stil have the copper antiseize in them and no signs of use or wear at all. That's not usually the case for police trade-ins, but you can still get some really good deals on police trade-in pistols.
I would go through the pistol and examine it closely and replace springs at a minimum, and see what else might stand in need. Just about everything there will be easily and inexpensively replaced, as need be.
Do the same with surplus mags. Make sure they insert and fall free and haven't expanded, been stepped on or bent or otherwise damaged.
I am confused what the answer to the OP would mean anyway? Maybe they do, maybe they don't but why would the answer mean anything?

When buying used, all bets are off. Sold as is, unless advertised.

Unless they advertise them as coming with 3 magazines, and provide only one, you don’t really have anything to complain about. JMHO.
Not complaining just wondering.

Except he can send it to Glock and they’ll go through it from stem to stern and replace everything damaged or worn at no charge and send back to him a rebuilt pistol.

If its a 40, I highly recommend just selling the old mags off, and replacing them with new $20 Glock mags.
.40 mags now come with extra power 11 coil springs. The older mags just came with standard 10 coil Glock 17 springs.

Or. Send several of these with the pistol to Glock in Smyrna and get them replaced with new ones for free while they give your new used G22 a sonic bath, oil massage and a new parts facial.

And how does one go about doing this? I just won an auction on GB for a G31, very excited.

This link will give you a web page where you can ask for the form which you’ll print out, fill in, and ship with your gun and magazines. At least that’s how it worked when I did it a couple years ago:
If you have any aftermarket parts in your Glock, other than sights, when you send it to Glock, they will remove everything and replace it with stock parts. You'll get your parts back in a baggie.
Warranty form PDF at the bottom of the page.

I have a G19 police trade in that looks a little rough on the outside, but is an excellent shooter. As long as it didn’t look damaged externally, I wouldn’t sweat buying another.
