The Carlsbad Police Department is getting a brand new $249,000 Lenco BearCat for use by the SWAT team, you know, if and when things really escalate in our fair city by the sea, according to a story in the Coast News.

“The rescue vehicle will be funded through the Homeland Security Grant Program’s Urban Areas Security Initiative and State Homeland Security Program,” said Sasway, adding that a year ago the department learned of these available funds.

Phew. Thought for a minute that we were paying for it. The new rig should arrive by November 2012 just in time for the end of the world.
