BOISE, Idaho (AP) — Two Treasure Valley police departments have bolstered their vehicle fleets with mine-proof vehicles no longer used by the military. The Boise and Nampa police departments have recently added Mine-Resistant Ambush Protected vehicles, or MRAPs to their vehicle inventories. The Caldwell Police Department is also on a waiting list for the same model and hopes to have in in town by the end of the year. The agencies received the vehicles through a Pentagon program that makes used military vehicles available to other government agencies. The MRAPs saw action in either Afghanistan or Iraq. Boise and Nampa officials say the vehicles will be used for transporting and rescue missions to get officers or SWAT teams to scenes safely involving bombs or heavily armed suspects.
