The Monroe County Sheriff's Office unveiled its newest vehicle Tuesday; one that did not cost the tax payers anything.
A surplus humvee was donated by the United States military to the Sheriff's office free of charge. Students in the auto body collision and repair tech class at BOCES 2 in Spencerport did the necessary body work and repainted the vehicle for the Sheriff's Office Fleet.
"It was a good experience and it was hard to work on because of the paint that was on there. It seemed like forever getting it off but when it was done it looked good and it paid off. We help them out and they help us out," said Kevin Christie, Greece Arcadia student.
"I appreciate what they do for us and how they put their lives at risk for us every day. I just feel this is something that we can pay back to them for all they hard work that they've done for us," said Halle Griffin, Brockport High School student.
The vehicle will be used by deputies for operational issues within the Sheriff’s Office Tactical Unit and in emergency situations.
