Winnipeg Police Service To Take Delivery of New Tactical Vehicle
In the spring of 2016, the Winnipeg Police Service will be taking delivery of a GURKHA tactical vehicle, manufactured by Terradyne Armored Vehicles, which is located in Newmarket, Ontario.
This vehicle, designed specifically for civilian based police purposes, will provide protection for Service members, partners such as the Tactical Emergency Medical Support (TEMS) Unit and the community as a whole.

Members of the Special Operations Group, including the Tactical Support Team (TST) and Crisis Negotiators are engaged in numerous high-risk incidents every year.  Keeping the public and police members safe will be the primary objective of this new tool. 
Whether transporting TEMS members into the danger zone to render first aid to those in need, allowing TST members to better communicate in an armed and barricaded situation or if necessary, provide a strategic advantage in the deployment of less than lethal force options, the GURKHA will provide a safe and secure means of doing so.
As seen in cities across Canada where Police Services have already invested in this type of vehicle, this acquisition will aid in an appropriate response to today's ever evolving policing requests.

   Constable Jason Michalyshen, Public Information Officer
