The St. Cloud Police Department unveiled the newest member of its vehicle fleet Monday, a military surplus armored personnel carrier that will be used by its SWAT team.

The vehicle is commonly called an MRAP, which stands for mine-resistant, ambush-protected. The city paid about $3,000 to ship the vehicle to St. Cloud from Kansas. The only other cost to the city was to paint it and put department logos on it.
