Q: Hello, I was looking through the budget this year and I wanted to find more details on the "Bear" armored vehicle mentioned as necessary Police capital in slide 113 of the budget. I couldn't see explanations for cost or usage. Any additional info would be great thanks.
A: Thank you for contacting the BFF email. The vehicle that you are inquiring about is an armored vehicle that officers use when responding to a tactical situation. The Irving Police Dept. was awarded grant funds that allowed for the purchase of a smaller bear armored vehicle in the amount of $141,924.
