Police: Armored Vehicle Intended For Rescue Operations

Cheyenne Police Department

The Field Commander for the Cheyenne Police Department SWAT team says a military-style armored vehicle the department recently acquired is most likely to be used as a rescue vehicle.

Lt. Terrance Bell says that although the Caimen armored vehicle is capable of resisting Improvised Explosive Devices–or IEDs –it’s  unlikely that local police would use it to face that kind of threat. He says far more likely scenarios in Cheyenne involve rescuing people in floods or blizzards, since the vehicle is equipped with four wheel drive and other features enabling it to travel over rough or wet terrain.

Bell says the most realistic local scenario in which the armor might come into play is if police were trying to rescue an officer or citizen who was pinned down by gunfire from a sniper.
