The Buena Vista County Sheriff’s Office is now home to an armored personnel carrier acquired through a special program from the U.S. military.
The armored vehicle is mainly used to protect soldiers from grenades on the battlefield, and this particular one has been used in the Middle East; however, this vehicle will serve a different purpose.
BV County Sheriff Gary Launderville says that it can come in handy in certain situations.
