County receives Humvee from Dept. of Energy

March 12, 2013

Representatives of the U.S Department of Energy (DOE) delivered an armored, Humvee to the Bingham County Sheriff's Department Tuesday morning. The older but still usable Humvee, a tool for protecting law enforcement officers and security guards in dangerous situations, had been previously used by the Idaho National Laboratory's Protective Force.
According to Rick Provencher, manager of DOE's Idaho Operations Office, the High Mobility Multipurpose Wheeled Vehicles (HMMWVs), commonly known as 'Humvees' were replaced at the INL recently by the newer-generation BearCat armored vehicles.
