NH city opts to buy armored vehicle for police
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.
