21 Explorers, from what I heard. Also, 1, brand new, 4.8 Meter Ribcraft USA RIB (without an engine).dh18 said:20 new F150's.... but in the past few months there was also a couple of dozen new marked explorers and another dozen or so assorted unmarked vehicles... the vehicles were all purchased under a bond bill from last summer, so in theory the money came from another place.
interesting piece of trivia someone once told me, the MSP Troop F payroll budget for last year was about $14 million, the MEP OVERALL budget was about $9.9 million to cover the whole state....
It was certainly NOT your typical Police exam. Being a water rat all my life, some of the hunting questions tripped me up a little.kmf294 said:I have a lot of respect for those guys. Anyone who can actually pass that test deserves it.
I wasn't aware that they had recently bought a SAFE (Secure Around Floatation Equipped)Boat. They are AWESOME tools. They have all the benefits of traditional RIBs (plus a whole lot more) with none of the drawbacks. The only reason I mentioned the Ribcraft was because I built it. :roll:dh18 said:well if you're including things other then cruisers, don't forget the 27' safe boat (a boat like the USCG uses) and 15 ATV's... the state purchasing website is a fun place to visit to see how much money the state is really spending http://www.state.ma.us/osd it shows all open and closed contracts
