STOCKTON (CBS13) – Stockton police on Wednesday unveiled their new armored SWAT vehicle.
The new crime-fighting tool cost $300,000, but the money didn’t come from the city’s taxed general fund. The money for the vehicle came from the confiscation of assets from criminals.
The top-of-the-line “Bear Cat” armored vehicle replaced the department’s old one, which wasn’t designed for tactical missions.
“It’s built for tactical purposes, so every part of this thing is armored,” Lt. Eric Ingersoll said.
The department purchased the vehicle last month and has already used it twice.
