Some heavy equipment is coming to the Laurie Police Department, courtesy of the US Government. The Board of Alderman have approved Police Chief Mark Black’s request to accept a Hummer military vehicle from the Defense Department. Black says the vehicle is being given free of charge and is in good condition. It will be used during any disaster situations and also during severe snow storms. Black says it will not be used as a daily patrol vehicle. If the cost of maintaining the vehicle becomes too expensive, it can be returned to the government.
