Cumberland Police Dept. adds Humvees to fleet

The City of Cumberland now has two Humvees at their police department.

The two all-terrain vehicles come to the city free of charge through the Department of Defense's 10-33 program which supplies excess military supplies to law enforcement for free.

They plan to use the for off-road and mountain rescue, during disasters such as tornadoes or floods, as well as in the snow.

"It's definitely a blessing to receive $80,000 worth of equipment to help our department do our job," said Cumberland Police Sergeant Silas Whitehead.

They do plan to paint the Humvees like a police car and add lights.

The department also got eight new computers through the program.
