NEW ADDITION TO USF POLICE DEPARTMENT FLEET

humvee

The USF Police Department has added a High Mobility Multipurpose Wheeled Vehicle (Humvee) to its fleet. The Humvee was acquired through a federal program that makes military surplus equipment available to law enforcement agencies. It was obtained in order to give UP the ability to move on campus after serious storms or other disruptions to campus life, which might have caused trees, limb, other debris, or high water to impede the roads during recovery operations. The ability to overcome light obstacles and operate in a very robust four-wheel-drive mode could prove decisive in UP's ability to respond in such circumstances. For recognition purposes, the Humvee is visually similar to UP's normally-marked patrol fleet and it is equipped with red/blue lights as well as siren capability.
