Monster truck

REGION

The new Worcester County Sheriff's Mobile Command Vehicle would have been a great perch for this year's World Cup soccer games.

The $514,000 behemoth -- largely paid for by the Department of Homeland Security -- is a high-tech conference room on wheels.

It has six chairs, a 42-inch flatscreen high-definition television and snack bar (just kidding about the snack bar). Unfortunately, it's only rolled out for emergencies. Read more about it in tomorrow's Globe West.
