The four-wheel-drive, six-cylinder diesel engine Humvee has only 7,000 miles on it — and the price was just right: Free

Chief Wayne Crump said the vehicle was acquired through the 1033 Law Enforcement Support Office program.

“It’s a program that allows us to obtain military surplus equipment through the state,” Crump said. “In the past, we’ve gotten weapons and protective gear for officers through the same program.”

The program provides surplus military

equipment to law enforcement agencies at no cost. The equipment is issued “as is and where is,” meaning that local law enforcement agencies have to pay delivery costs and any needed repairs.

Crump said there’s no fee to register for the program and “once registered, we can take from it as often as we want,” Crump said. “We just have to have a use for it.”
