Brunswick Police Chief Scott Stewart Defends His Request For A New Armored Vehicle

About This Project

On the WCME Midcoast Morning Buzz, the chief defends his controversial plan to purchase the Bearcat, an armored vehicle that would serve as a replacement for another vehicle now deemed to be outmoded. Chief Stewart notes that at any given moment, in the midst of a tense and threatening situation, the Bearcat could be a lifesaver.

But it’s not cheap–it carries a $380,000 price tag.
