Stamford PD SRT - Lenco BearCat
An essential tool to provide state-of-the-art protection is the Lenco Bearcat. The BearCat is widely used to protect law enforcement and rescue civilian populations in weather-related disasters, high risk warrant service and active shooter scenarios. The BearCat (pictured) has sufficient ballistic protection to provide a safe working environment for SRT members. Not only does the BearCat protect the police inside the vehicle, but the vehicle has been used to evacuate citizens who lived nearby dangerous incidents. The police have brought civilians inside the BearCat to drive them safely out of harm’s way. It has also been used to rescue wounded personnel and to evacuate citizens from life-threatening situations, such as barricaded suspects and active shooter scenarios.
Stamford is the 4th largest city in Connecticut. Each of the three larger cities: Bridgeport, New Haven and Hartford have BearCats currently in service - Hartford and Bridgeport have two to cover their populations. A BearCat in Stamford would not only cover the population of the city, but would be available to neighboring towns during crisis situations.
It is one of the current goals of the Stamford Police Foundation, a registered 501(c)(3) non-profit charitable organization, to work with Stamford Police Department and the SRT to help procure the funds necessary for the BearCat.
Please support the Stamford Police Department, the SRT and the Stamford Police Foundation in making this goal a reality. Your donations to this cause are tax deductible! For more information about the Stamford Police Foundation, please go to: www.stamfordpolicefoundation.org.
