Today's Poll: Should Batavia PD try to acquire, for free, a military armored vehicle?
I have not taken the opportunity to read up on this offer, but be aware that the "for free" adjective may only cover the acquisition cost. Maintenance and upkeep on this type of vehicle can be steep.
Still, the opportunity to get a piece of equipment that can help protect officers should be seriously considered. (FWIW - I voted "Yes")
Being on the International Chassis, it's going to cost no less than a dump truck or other vehicle at the DPW. Probably a little more since it's likely to not be driven as much as a dump truck. Upffiting costs are going to be shared with the Sheriff's Dept, Maintenance costs may also be shared too. It will benefit the County in more ways than just officer protection as well. They can be driven in a flood, snowstorm etc.
