BOISE, Idaho (AP) -- The Ada County Sheriff's office in southwestern Idaho has a new armored vehicle it's been using for law enforcement work.
The Idaho Statesman reports that the agency on Tuesday gave the public a glimpse of the U.S. Military Surplus Reva 4x4 MKII Armored Personnel Carrier.
The vehicle has already been used by the Ada County Sheriff's SWAT team and been loaned to police in Meridian earlier this month who were engaged in an armed standoff.
Ada County Sheriff's office spokeswoman Andrea Dearden says the vehicle can be used to provide cover for law enforcement and paramedics in dangerous situations.
Ada County was one of 10 law enforcement agencies in the U.S. to receive one of the decommissioned vehicles.
The vehicle came from Iraq and had dents from gunfire.
