WPD lands two Hummers, and the price was right: $0

March 8, 2014

WOONSOCKET – It’s okay if you call them Hummers – everyone will. But the fact is, those squat, camouflage-patterned 4-by-4s you may have seen parked outside police headquarters the last couple of days are bona fide High Mobility Multi-Purpose Wheeled Vehicles, or HMMWVs – equipment manufactured for the Army that inspired the mainstream consumer cousin.

The Woonsocket Police Department is now in possession of two of the military vehicles, worth about $60,000 each.

This is what the WPD paid: The Bubble. As in zero, zilch, nada.

And it couldn’t be any easier to register to see if you’re a match.
