Columbia Police Hopes New Grant Will Improve Response Time
"Primarily, it will help us in response time because a lot of the WMB equipment we have now is being stored at a fire station away from the police department due to a lack of space," Captain Tom Dresner said. "But once the vehicle arrives, we'll be able to put it all in one place and have it right here in the garage with us."
The police department plans to buy the vehicle in the next month. Dresner says it's a large panel truck, like a delivery truck.
