BUTTE COUNTY, Calif. — If money from a 2011 federal Homeland Security grant is ever forwarded to Butte County from the state, most of it will be used to purchase a tactical armored vehicle, Chico Police Chief Mike Maloney recently announced.

The vehicle would be shared by SWAT teams from the Butte County Sheriff's Office and Chico, and be available for incidents throughout the county.
