Police Eyeing New S.W.A.T. Vehicle
Yakima police may be adding a new vehicle to their department.
Police are asking Yakima City Council to approve a resolution tomorrow night, which would allow police to purchase a refurbished S.W.A.T. vehicle.
The vehicle would come from a manufacturer in Massachusetts -- police say it would upgrade the current S.W.A.T. vehicle, which was built during the Vietnam War.
Yakima City Council will decide tomorrow whether to spend 127 thousand dollars on the vehicle.
A new one would cost about 230 thousand dollars.
