KEENE, N.H.—The police department in the New Hampshire city of Keene is going to be getting an armored vehicle.

On Thursday the city council decided to move forward with a plan to use $250,000 in federal money to buy the vehicle called a "Bearcat."

The vehicle will be used regionally.

WMUR-TV ( http://bit.ly/xtADlM) says opponents of the purchase claim it is a waste of money for a quiet corner of New Hampshire.

Police say the Bearcat will be in Keene and ready for use this fall.
