AN ARMOURED Land Rover costing £183,000 has been delivered to Guernsey Police.
The vehicle has protection from bullets or missile devices and can withstand a substantial blast, unlike the force's two armed response vehicles, which transport officers and equipment to a potential firearms incident.
Chief firearms instructor Inspector J-P Le Breton said it enhanced the team's capability considerably and plugged a protection gap that a review had identified.
'Although we are an island we still face the same threats as everywhere else. Albeit it is not as often, but we are still vulnerable.'
