The Concord Police’s new armored vehicle, which is said to be worth about $380,000, will be making its debut at the Salvation Army Community Partners Fair on Saturday June 30th from 10am-3pm at the Salvation Army Church on Clayton Road.
The military’s excess equipment program enabled the city to obtain its own 8½-ton bulletproof tactical vehicle, among other discarded equipment, according to an article in CaliforniaWatch.org.
According to the article, the vehicle was donated to CPD.
It is unknown how many miles per gallon it gets.
