Corbin Police Department gets donated Hummers

CORBIN — The Corbin Police Department has two new additions to its fleet — a pair of Hummers (High Mobility Multipurpose Vehicles), that can be used during inclement weather like snow, flooding, tornadoes and ice storms, as well as specialized operations for the police department.

Detective Rusty Hedrick heard of the Hummers through DLA Disposition Services, a defense logistics program which disposes of excess property received from the military services. Hedrick went online to request the demilitarized vehicles, which are offered to local, state and federal police agencies at no cost to them.

Hedrick’s request was approved, and recently, Corbin Police officers drove to Dayton, Ohio, to pick up the vehicles at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base. While the two off-road vehicles remain the property of the U. S. Government, Corbin Police can operate the two Hummers as long as they have a use for them.
