The Tri-Cities now has a new, state-of-the-art armored vehicle intended to protect officers and help community members during high-risk police situations.

The BearCat, a $292,000 armored personnel carrier, was unveiled Tuesday at the Kennewick police station. The vehicle will be used by the Tri-City Regional SWAT team.

“Before it’s out of service, it will have saved a life,” said Kennewick police Capt. Scott Child. “We are very thankful, and this truly does make our community a safer place.”
