Stevens Point PD to receive armored vehicle

STEVENS POINT (WAOW ) -- Stevens Point police will soon have a new tool in the arsenal, the department announced Wednesday.

Officials say the department is getting an armored military surplus vehicle to use when needed. They say police applied for the vehicle through a program and were recently approved.

Sgt. Tony Babl says the vehicle will be used for various incidents, flooding and disaster response, as well as tactical situations.

Babl estimated the rig will arrive in central Wisconsin sometime in early May.
