The City of Fernley and Lyon County have teamed up with the Lyon County Sheriff’s Office to purchase a new tactical armored vehicle for the sheriff’s office.
The Sentinel ARV was purchased from International Armored Group in Florida. It will replace the current armored car being used by the Sheriff’s Office, a military surplus MRAP Cougar. The new vehicle is lighter, faster, and will be able to transport the entire Emergency Response Team to an incident. With the new vehicle comes advancements in technology that will add to the safety of team members and civilians that may become involved.
The Lyon County Sheriff’s Office would like to dedicate its new vehicle in memory of Deputy Sheriff George T Rice who was killed in the line of duty in 1984.
