Seneca antes up arsenal to deal with the bad guys
The police at Seneca have fortified themselves with the acquisition of a war-like vehicle that offers greater protection during potentially dangerous situations. It’s one of those high mobility multi-purpose wheeled vehicles—commonly called a Humvee. And, according to Officer Dwayne Kelley, the police got it—without paying a penny. It came to Seneca through a program that stocks law enforcement agencies with vehicles and equipment no longer needed by the military. This Humvee had been built for the Marines for overseas deployment. Now, according to Sgt. Kelley, in Seneca’s use, the four-wheel drive, armor-plated Humvee has been adapted for stand-off situations and other dangerous events. Kelley commands Seneca’s Tactical Response Team.
