What the hell is going on in Fond du Lac that it needs this?
According to this article in FDLreporter, Fond du Lac’s SWAT team has 12 tactical operators. I take it from a comment left on facebook that F.D.L. Police already has another SWAT vehicle and this is the 2nd one in their possession. Maybe I’ll be able to confirm that later — or somebody can confirm in a comment.
“An internal assessment of tactical risk, preparedness and response resources determined there was a need for the vehicle”, says the Fond du Lac Police Chief.
The vehicle is a gift from the Joe and Dawn Colwin Family Foundation.
For your information, the population of Fond du Lac was 43,021 at the 2010 census.
