Sheriff's Office Gets Mine Resistant Vehicle


The Sangamon County sheriff’s department has a heavily-armored vehicle… but it’s not exactly recreational.

 

The department has obtained a “mine resistant ambush protected vehicle.”

 

It was designed for use in overseas war zones… but with the wars in the Middle East coming to a close, the federal government had lots of the M-RAPs left over.

 

The county only had to pay 64-hundred dollars for the 11-foot-tall vehicle… which it plans to use in standoffs with armed suspects.
