Medford Police Roll Out New SWAT Truck

By Jim McCoy Fri 7th December NewsMedford Police
Medford police have a new SWAT truck that will stop a .50-caliber bullet. Police Chief Tim George told the Mail Tribune the $260,000 vehicle was paid for with savings on equipment repairs, fuel and other services. The truck is built on a Ford F-550 chassis, holds up to 10 officers, and has a revolving gun turret on the roof and gun portals in the sides. City Councilor John Michaels joked that it could be useful in a zombie apocalypse. George says police expect to take it out 20 times a year. It has already been used once, in the arrest of a man wanted in a shooting at a local restaurant. Associated Press
