Got our first look at the new rescue vehicle today. Quite impressive and should be a valuable addition to rescue capabilities not only barricaded subjects but also floods and blizzards and other life saving situations.

Harvey County Sheriff's Office
This week, our Harvey County Emergency Response Team received its BearCat armored rescue vehicle. We want everyone to be familiar with it inside-and-out from the start so you can learn how it's a life-saving tool for our communities and our first responders.

We hope this is a piece of equipment we never need to use. However, we know there are recent incidents where we could have used an armored rescue vehicle. Ultimately, we want our first responders to feel safe while we strive for peaceful resolutions. Previously, our ERT was using a refurbished ambulance. The BearCat provides much more safety and capability.

To help everyone learn more about the BearCat, we had some of our ERT members talk about the purchase and what the BearCat could be used for.

Good to know...and thanks!Ever had to stare longingly through your car window at the keys on the other side, unable to be reunited because you accidentally locked yourself out? It happens. It stinks.

Our deputies actually have tools to help get you out of this jam. Give us a call, and if our deputies have a few minutes to spare, we'll come unlock your car for free. Of course there may be calls of more priority, so you may have to wait or want to find another option, but we're happy to help out if we can.
