The Armored Crew Cab Truck is more compact and mobile than the larger, heavier armored vehicles that the department currently utilizes. The elevated level of armor provides a significant safety barrier for officers during volatile situations. The vehicle can transport up to four fully equipped tactical officers and can also be utilized by the tactical medical team to rescue injured civilians and officers. SWAT, Warrant Execution Teams and Crime Suppression Teams will utilize the vehicles to be more effective in deploying officers and equipment during critical incidents and to increase officer safety during high risk apprehension of wanted criminals. With the purchase of six vehicles, tactical and rescue missions could be conducted simultaneously, as well as responding to multiple scenes should there be two special threat scenes at the same time, which is becoming more common.
