Wyoming Counties the Latest to Snag Surplus Military Armored Vehicles

WORLAND — The latest acquisition by the Joint Tactical Emergency Response Team is another step in ensuring public safety.

The MRAP vehicle, or Mine Resistant Ambush Protected, was recently acquired through surplus inventory at no cost to the public, Washakie County Sheriff Steve Rakness said.

The vehicle will be available in emergency situations to Washakie, Big Horn and Hot Springs counties and the Worland Police Department.

"We have been looking for an armored vehicle for about 20 years," he said. "We've had our name on the list but haven't been able to get one because they are in such high demand."
